Calvin Harris vows to quit DJing at 50

Calvin Harris done at 50

Calvin Harris will quit DJing when he turns 50.

The prolific producer and DJ - who turned 40 in January - has revealed that he plans to stop performing and will focus on making music when he reaches his next milestone age.

He told UK radio station Capital Dance: "I always said that once I get past 50, I can’t see me DJing, man."

When host MistaJam pointed out that British DJ Carl Cox is still doing live performances at 61, Calvin said: "It’s a certain type of DJing. On the more commercial end, it gets a wee bit… a little bit suspect."

And, Calvin would prefer to stay out of the spotlight once he hits 50.

He said: "I think I’d prefer to be in the studio making tunes, like ghost producers. I think that’s where the majority of my talent lies, is making songs sound good. So, I would like to make other people’s records sound good."

He also revealed he plans to work more on producing for other artists in the next few years, saying: "42, 43 — something like that."

Meanwhile, Calvin and Ellie Goulding are set to perform for the first time together at the BRIT Awards with Mastercard.

The superstar DJ and the pop star are anticipated to perform their mega-hit 'Miracle' at the awards ceremony at London's The O2 arena on March 2.

Calvin said: “Can’t wait for a VERY SPECIAL performance with Ellie!”

The pair previously collaborated on the dance-pop anthems 'I Need Your Love' in 2012 and 'Outside' in 2014.

The star-studded bash will also see Becky Hill and Chase and Status come together for a "celebration of drum and bass".

The lineup includes Nigerian Afrowave superstar Rema, Jungle, Dua Lipa, Kylie Minogue and RAYE.

Nominees include Arlo Parks, Blur, Calvin Harris, Central Cee, Dave, Dua Lipa, Fred again.., Jessie Ware, J Hus, Little Simz, Olivia Dean, Mahalia, PinkPantheress, Miley Cyrus, Olivia Rodrigo, RAYE, The Rolling Stones, SZA, Taylor Swift, and Young Fathers.
