Before reguarly scoring six-figure DJ gigs, Zedd got his start in music at the age of just four years old. Throughout the years, Zedd has gained world-wide popularity for his music and live shows.
“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.”
To honor Zedd for all of the work he's done these past few years, Forbes decided to give the cover to Zedd for this year's 30 Under 30 achievements. While asked about his live show, Zedd responds “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 for 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.”
