The Sunday Times Rich List calculates the wealth of the 1,000 richest people in Britain.

While the full list will be published on Sunday May 13, a list of the richest musicians has already been revealed – as well as the richest musicians under 30 years old.

The list is calculated by each star’s “identifiable wealth,” which includes land, property, assets like art and racehorses, and shares in public companies. It does not include the amount in any private bank accounts.

This year, the richest young musicians under 30 include members of bands as well as solo artists.

Scroll down to see the 11 richest young musicians under 30 in Britain, ranked in ascending order by wealth.
