Avicii, Calvin Harris, Zedd land on Forbes ’30 Under 30′

Shining the spotlight on young and rising stars across fifteen industries annually, Forbes has named a total of 450 prodigies from finance to tech


from law to food for their latest30 Under 30 selections. This year’s music category is championed by Bruno Mars, but placing in a close second is Avicii, the “household name” and “six-figures-per-gig” who produced one of the year’s biggest hits and beat everyone from Lady Gaga to Justin Bieber to the two-hole.

Following relative titans such as Drake and Miley Cyrus, Calvin Harris comes slotted. This, however, to no surprise. The dance music poster boy has practically earned himself a Mr. Forbes nickname this year after landing on any of the magazine’s lists that’d have him. Katy Perry, Rihanna, Taylor Swift are few of the big-names that round out the list, but it comes to a close with one Zedd. Forbes notes the Germany-bred artist as one of the fast-rising producers in pop and hottest DJs in dance music.
