Power 96.1 Jingle Ball 2016 lineup spotlights Ariana Grande, The Chainsmokers, DNCE and more


(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.

Tickets for Jingle Ball are $50-$130. A Capital One cardholder pre-sale begins at 10 a.m. Oct. 13 through 10 a.m. Oct. 16 (or until sold out) and the general public on-sale is at noon Oct. 17. Tickets can be purchased at or by calling 1-800-745-3000.
