Calvin Harris is once again the king of the party!

According to Forbes' annual list of highest-paid DJs, the 30-year-old hitmaker managed to jam his way to the top for the second year in a row.  

Thanks to a two-year deal at Las Vegas' megaclub Hakkasan and addition songwriting and producing gigs with talented artists like Rihanna and Kesha, Harris earned a respectable $66 million in the past 12 months.

It's even higher than the whopping $46 million Harris made in 2013.

So how did the "Summer" DJ react to the good news? He took part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, of course.

After being nominated by Tinashe and fellow DJ Tiësto, Harris agreed to get doused in freezing cold water—shirtless—in order to promote awareness for Lou Gehrig's disease.  

But to be fair, Harris isn't the only star making the big bucks while deejaying.

David Guetta came in second place on Forbes list by earning an impressive $30 million. Swedish DJ Avicii, who created the smash-hit "Wake Me Up," came in third with $28 million. 

Tiësto and Steve Aoki rounded out the Top 5.
