Every year Electronic Dance Music seems to take another step toward the spotlight. With big business jumping in, huge festivals popping up all over the world, and the DJ/producers making some big dollars, EDM is taking a hold not only on the US, but the world it seems. It also doesn’t hurt when we have some of the most passionate fans in existence.

At number 93 there is Tom Windish, founder and president of The Windish Agency, which represents over 700 clients including names such as Flosstradamus and Dillon Francis. Up 19 spots to number 72, they have Insomniac founder and CEO Pasquale Rotella. Then entering this year there is SFX Entertainment founder and CEO Robert F.X. Sillerman, who enters the chart this year at #52 after being absent from last year’s list. Sillerman’s SFX has basically become and EDM conglomerate buying up everything from Beatport, Made Event to ID&T and many more.
