Carl Cox tops annual list of highest-paid djs
In 2021 it looked like the dj’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (November 29) that Cox is the highest-paid dj in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between October 2022 and October 2023, a nearly $60 million lead over his closest competition.
People With Money’s factors
In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.
The British dj has an estimated net worth of $275 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Cox Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Barbados Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondercox - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Carl) and a fashion line called “Carl Cox Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Carl fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
