Last summer, Forbes released its second annual World’s Highest Paid DJs list, which was topped by EDM crossover star Calvin Harris, who earned a cool $46 million, thanks to hit songs like “Feel So Close” and commanding stratospheric amounts of money to perform around the world.
Sitting at No. 6 on that list was breakout star Avicii ($20 million), who elevated from EDM icon to mainstream music hero with the release of his debut album, True, which featured the innovative smash hit, “Wake Me Up,” featuring Aloe Blacc and Incubus guitarist, Mike Einziger.
It looks like the young Swede sank a good chunk of that revenue into an absolutely stunning Hollywood Hills mansion, with Dancing Astronaut presenting a gallery of images from the house that look more like something found in the pages of Architectural Digest.
The sprawling two-story home covers a full 7,000 square feet, and set the DJ/producer back $15.75 million, purchased from beauty industry mogul Bruno Mascolo, who heads up the American division of U.K.-based hairdressing brand, Toni & Guy.
Boasting seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms, among the space’s many amenities include a glass-walled bridge over the swimming pool and a master bedroom with two entirely glass walls that reveal a breathtaking view of Los Angeles.
Avicii is one of the many EDM superstars set to descend on Miami for both Miami Music Week and as a headliner at this year’s Ultra Music Festival (March 28-30), alongside such fellow dance music luminaries as Tiesto and David Guetta. Avicii will also have the unique distinction of his own namesake hotel in Miami, with the SLS Hotel South Beach being transformed into the Avicci Hotel over March 26-30.
