40. Afrojack

Afrojack has been behind a passel of hits, from "Pon De Floor," which he co-produced with Major Lazer in 2009, to a fruitful partnership with Pitbull peaking with a featured appearance on "Give Me Everything," No. 1 in 2011. But he's also a fan favorite at the festivals, and his forthcoming Forget the World – his first real album (like many EDM artists, it's been mostly singles, EPs, and remixes) – is a step beyond "I didn't want to make it a festival banger," as he recently told Rolling Stone. Guests include Wiz Khalifa and Sting.
