(Meghan Trainor, who was part of the initial lineup, has been put on "strict vocal rest" and canceled the remainder of her 2016 performances. The station has added a special performance of "Bad Things" by Machine Gun Kelly and Fifth Harmony's Camila Cabello.)
Power 96.1 has culled an impressive lineup for its annual Jingle Ball concert.
Ariana Grande, Meghan Trainor, The Chainsmokers, Fifth Harmony, DNCE, Alessia Cara, Daya and Lukas Graham will perform at the Dec. 16 show at Philips Arena.
Several of the acts have recently played Atlanta - DNCE and Daya hit Music Midtown, Fifth Harmony filled Chastain – but Grande is a notable anchor. She, by the way, will return to Atlanta in April for a headlining show at Philips Arena.
