Paul Oakenfold @ El Santo
Over the summer, an online list of the world's richest DJs featured the multimillion-dollar net worths of 30 superstar spinsters and demonstrated once again that EDM artists and DJs are the new rock stars. British-born house legend Paul Oakenfold was ranked second on the list, as he has an estimated net worth of $55 million. It's unsurprising, considering that the esteemed 49-year-old is widely considered to be a god of electronica, headlining gigs around the world on the back of multiple platinum albums and remixes. But just because Oakenfold's bank account is overflowing, don't try to ask him to buy you a drink during his performance at El Santo Cantina y Mas, 7301 East Butherus Drive, during the latest edition of Relentless Beach on Friday, September 21. Instead, grab your swim fins and watch as Oakenfold weaves an intoxicating mix of house and trance for those partying poolside at the North Scottsdale beach bar. Local DJ duo of Turner and Heit will provide support. The event starts at 9 p.m. Admission is $20. See www.relentlessbeats.com.
