Calvin Harris has been a fixture at the top of Forbe's DJ Rich List for half a decade or more, but today he was crowned the 16th richest musician in the UK according to the annual Sunday Times Rich List.

Calvin was the only DJ to feature on the list of 1,000 wealthiest people in Britain. According to the list, the Scottish DJ's personal wealth has increased by £15 million from last year to an estimated £180 million total. This places him higher than such iconic musicians as Phil Collins (£140m), Adele (£150m) and Eric Clapton (£175m), but below contemporaries such as Ed Sheeran (£200m), Robbie Williams (£185m) and Rihanna (£468m).

Touring musicians are obviously taking a huge hit this year due to COVID-19l, so the list could dramatically change between now and next year, but it seems that 2019 was a pretty good year for UK musician's finances.
