The Running of the Chihuahuas

Hits 96 announces the performer lineup for the 12th annual 'Running of the Chihuahuas' that takes place at the First Tennessee Pavilion.

The 2019 lineup is:

  • Madison Beer
  • Fletcher
  • Drax Project
  • Livvia
  • MKTO
  • NOTD

Brad Steiner says, “Our little event has gotten the attention of so many around the country that artists are calling and asking us to perform. We can’t believe we put together a lineup this big and diverse.”

Madison Beer is an international superstar with over 12 million Instagram followers and multiple hits over her short career that began when Justin Bieber noticed her YouTube channel as a teenager in 2012.

Fletcher is an overnight sensation with a debut single, Undrunk, currently in the top 15 of the top 40 chart.

Recently added to the Bonnaroo lineup, Drax Project makes history as the furthest traveling participant in Runing of the Chihuahuas history, coming from New Zealand with a top 30 hit, Woke Up Late.

Livvia and MKTO become the 2nd and 3rd artists, respectively, to make a return to the Running of the Chihuahuas stage with Swedish band NOTD making their debut appearance and one of their first North American radio shows on May 4th.


We were honored that Madison Beer and Fletcher will be part of our growing history of bringing major stars to town. We are even more excited to continue to break artists to the city like Drax Project, MKTO, NOTD and one of our best friends, Livvia!

Steiner adds, “We have a VERY special artists coming to Chattanooga to play for Hits 96 listeners ONLY and will be giving 150 tickets away to the show all day at the Running of the Chihuahuas 12. We can’t wait to tell you who is coming!”
