It seems we get all our news on deadmau5 from his twitter these days. Recently, however, it’s not another internet spat or scandal that has made headlines for the notorious superstar.
After a fan asked the artist how much he makes per show via twitter, Deadmau5 (as per his usual degree of classiness) decided to just come out with the number. In 2014, it was reported by YourEDM that the mau5 made between $200-250k per show. Over the last two years that number, at minimum, has doubled.
@dudewlf there are several contributing factors, but it ranges to anywhere from $400,000 to $1,000,000 USD

If the recent tweet of Deadmau5 is to be taken at face value, then he makes between $400,000 to $1,000,000 USD per show. It just goes to show how wildly successful EDM has grown over the last two years.
