Zedd appears on cover of Forbes ‘30 under 30’ magazine

One of the world’s biggest DJs, and most widely acclaimed live acts, Zedd, has ticked off a true bucket list item by appearing on the cover of the legendary Forbes Magazine. The publication, unveiling their iconic ‘30 under 30‘ feature, chose to include Zedd due to his fascinating story of a young background in classical music, to his modern day multi-million pound earning fortunes as a DJ.

 “I see myself as an artist who presents a show,” says Zedd, who earned $19 million this year and $85 million over the past five.

Giving a statement on where he sees his own future within the industry, the ‘Clarity‘ producer added:

“I think I will one day go unplugged or change my show somehow. Or my show form, I’ll say that. Currently I am still DJing, yet I think I have a way more dramatic show, and a much more dynamic show than I’ve ever had, that involves a lot of planning … the nature of the DJ is to go up there, and play a song, look at the crowd, feel it out, and then play whatever you think people want to hear.”

The December issue of Forbes will be released on December 12, with this particular issue a must-have for all electronic music fans.
