Hits 96’s Running Of The Chihuahuas 11 Announces Performer Lineup

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Hits 96, WDOD-FM, will showcase five up and coming stars this year at the annual Running Of The Chihuahuas, May 5, at the First Tennessee Pavilion. 

Event organizer Brad Steiner said, “This is the most exciting group of young performers we have had in our history.”

This year, performers include Nina Nesbitt, LIVVIA, The Unlikely Candidates, Bryce Vine, and Nick Lutsko. 

Station Manager Danny Howard said, “Every year we create a platform to break new artists to Chattanooga and watch their careers launch to the next level.”

Previous years performers have included Rachel Platten, Hot Chelle Rae, Aaron Carter, AJR and many more.

Mr. Howard said, “Our artists have gone on to have number 1 singles across the charts, headlined Riverbend, and more. We are so proud that Chattanooga is so supportive of new and up and coming talent.” 

Review for the performers: 

Among the artists playing The Running of the Chihuahuas 11, Nick Lutsko will bring a new level of energy to the event. In partnership with Super Deluxe, Nick has created viral sensations with his mash-ups of news makers and popular music. Some of those Webby nominated viral videos will be performed live while the videos play around the stage. 

Also taking the stage, vocalists Nina Nesbitt and LIVVIA as well as festival staple The Unlikely Candidates. Warner Brothers recording artist Bryce Vine will showcase his songs that have amassed over 20 million Spotify streams and currently ranks #6 on the Chattanooga Shazaam chart. He describes his sound as if “Blink 182 and Outkast got drunk with the Gorillaz and started playing music together.” 

Hits 96 will be giving away artist meet and greets on the air with special VIP packages.  Registration is open and available at www.hits96.com on a first come, first serve basis. Spectators are encouraged to participate, for free, starting at 2 p.m. at the First Tennessee Pavilion. Music begins at 3 p.m. and racing begins, tentatively, at 6 p.m.

If interested, sponsors are being accepted by calling 321-6200.

TVA Land Grab

All by the same play book. All from average people. We want this, you have this, we get this. I worked with TVA as a ... (click for more)
