Taxpayers show that a number of Norwegian artists have a profitable year in 2017.
At the peak of income and wealth, two EDM artists from Bergen are the throne.
Artist Kyrere "Kygo" Gørvell-Dahll resigned from the concert business in 2017. However, taxpayers indicated that he more than doubled his assets to 52.4 million.
On the revenue side, figures for 2017 indicate that the artist earned 5.6 million. Significantly smaller than in 2016 when the fan boom produced 8.1 million kroner.
The money was used by Kygo to buy the most expensive house ever sold in Bergen.
Kygo, on the other hand, cannot measure against other fanabu.
His income is four times
Masked pop artist Alan Walker had a significant increase in income from 2015 to 2017. Even though he had 38 net income in 2015, he earned 2.8 million in revenue the following year.
In 2017, Walker's revenue quadrupled from NOK 12 million. The wealth of rock artists also rose sharply to NOK 9.7 million.
Both DJs have received many concerts and streaming services such as Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal. According to the figures Spotify itself, Gorvell-Dahll and Walker each have 24.6 million and 18.8 million listeners each month.
Pop heroes from the 80s are still above
Although new mountain people, pop heroes from the 1980s still have to be considered. In 2017, Morten Harket had revenues of 5.7 million kroner and a net worth of 10.7 million.
The colleague of the Band Magne Furuholmen was not registered with income in 2017, but has returned to salt porridge with a wealth of 6.65 million.
Also not the last person on a-ha, Pål Waaktaar-Savoy, posted with income. On the other hand, it has the highest assets of 14.3 million.
Taxpayers also showed that Karpe Diem laid back a good year in 2017. The pair has doubled revenue of 2.9 million for Magdi Omar Ytreeide Abdelmaguid and 3.1 million for Chirag Rashmikant Patel. The latter also increased its assets to NOK 6.98 million.
