Quick Hits: BottleRock Napa Valley Festival, The Chainsmokers, Ed Sheeran

Foo Fighters, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Maroon 5 will headline the BottleRock Napa Valley Festival this May. It is the Foos' first announced North American gig in 2017 though the band is rumored to play a number of festivals throughout the globe this year. Also on the bill are Modest Mouse, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Ben Harper, Silversun Pickups, The Roots, Band of Horses, Fitz & the Tantrums and many, many more. The three-day music, wine, food, and craft brew festival takes place at Napa Valley Expo from May 26-28.

The Chainsmokers have signed an exclusive three-year agreement with Wynn Nightlife for a Las Vegas residency. The hit-making duo will only perform at Wynn's XS and Encore Beach Clubs in Vegas until 2019. "We are so thrilled to have this residency at the Wynn," Alex Pall of the Chainsmokers said in a press release. "They represent the best of what Las Vegas has to offer and we look forward to a great partnership."

Is Ed Sheeran about to announce a new album? Over the weekend, the singer promised "New music coming Friday!!" in a video posted online. A new tweet on Monday added that something is coming this Friday, January 6 at midnight ET. Since then, Sheeran has been posting cryptic tweets, including one that fans are interpreting to infer that his new record will be called ÷, since his past records were called x and +.
