Daft Punk $60 million each
The quirky French duo are notoriously secretive behind the disguise of their robot masks, this has made them “anonymous icons” as they can live among the public unnoticed and still enjoy their success. Their latest headgear was created exclusively by the Hollywood special effects shop that worked on the new Spiderman blockbuster. Despite their lack of recent tour dates and only one major merchandising campaign with The Gap, their anxiously anticipated latest album “Random Access Memories” became the fastest selling album of 2013, and their single “Get Lucky” became the most streamed song in the history of Spotify. Known for their elaborate stage set ups, crazy music videos and artistic album covers, this apparent sophistication distinguishes them from their peers. With their new music, they aim to reinvent EDM and give audiences a more emotional connection to it. When they’re not working or watching horror films, they are busy relaxing poolside with the likes of Pharrell Williams.
