How much does David Guetta earn?
David Guetta is one of the longest-serving and most popular DJs in the business. At the same time, he is one of the absolute top earners in the industry, bringing it to about 140 performances a year, at which he collects up to 200,000 dollars fee. He regularly releases albums and often collaborates with international pop stars. No wonder that he is also a favored advertising partner due to his fame.
Forbes magazine put Guetta in 2nd place on the list of the best-paid DJs in 2014, with an estimated income of $30 million. However, Guetta himself contradicted this estimate in an interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, explaining, “DJs don’t disclose their income as a rule.” However, if you extrapolate the fees to the appearances, then this is quite a realistic value. We thus arrive at an estimated fortune of about 65 million dollars. This also makes him one of the richest DJs in the world.
David Guetta: From Paris DJ to world star
Born in Paris on November 7, 1967, David Guetta was already spinning records in the discos of his hometown at the age of 16. Although he enjoyed his first successes as a DJ in the 1980s and ’90s, his rise to worldwide acclaim did not begin until the 2000s. His 2002 debut “Just a Little More Love” sold over 250,000 copies and earned him a respectable 6th place on the French album charts. Subsequent albums “Guetta Blaster” (2004) and “Pop Life” (2007) didn’t necessarily sell any better – but contained hugely successful club hits that raised Guetta’s profile internationally. The award for Best DJ in the World during the World Music Awards in London in 2007 confirmed the upward trend. This was followed by appearances at major dance events and a DJ set during the 2008 Loveparade in Dortmund.
Further releases and hits steadily built Guetta’s reputation in the years to come, making him an in-demand DJ and producer. Thanks to Guetta, house has gained enormous reputation and is increasingly approaching genres such as pop and hip-hop. Guetta himself collaborates with stars of different musical genres, including Alicia Keys, Rihanna or Akon. With the DJ and producer Joachim Garraud, also from France, he runs the label Gum Records, which belongs to Virgin. Guetta has also established one of Europe’s most popular house events under the title “F*** Me I’m Famous.” Last but not least, he is featured on various European radio stations with regular sets.

Along with other well-known musicians, Guetta also lends his name to a model in the Beats by Dr. Dre headphone line by rapper and producer Dr. Dre. The associated company, Beats Electronics, hit the headlines in 2014 after it was revealed that Apple had offered about $3 billion to buy the company.
Since 2011, the DJ has acted as an advertiser for the energy drink Burn, which belongs to Coca Cola. As a result of the collaboration, the film “Nothing But The Beat” was created, which traces the career of the Frenchman from underground DJ to superstar. The film was broadcast in 22 countries and accompanied by an extensive PR campaign. The agency responsible, Giant Step, recorded 950,000 downloads, a 40 percent increase in digital sales of the album of the same name, and a 600 percent increase in Facebook engagement. The film topped the iTunes charts (film category) in 24 countries.
David Guetta also proved his promotional effectiveness for technology company HP. The launch for the Web OS Touchpad in 2011 featured a cross-media campaign centered on the French star. Users of the device were able to mix their own music using an app and were given access to bonus material from Guetta.
Guetta also made himself available for a large-scale campaign for car manufacturer Renault in 2013. Accompanying the launch of the Renault Twizy electric car, a film was produced featuring the DJ and his then-wife Cathy, motto: “Plug Into The Positive Energy.”
