The Beach Boys' rolling tune machine Brian Wilson (pictured) is set to headline the Hop Farm Music Festival (4-6 Jul, The Hop Farm Family Park , thehopfarmmusicfestival.com ), which is a different festival entirely from the Vince Power -helmed event of the same name. That festival is moving to Tunbridge Wells after it was forced to cancel last year because of poor ticket sales. Got it? Good . . . On a more straightforward tip, Kendal's finest falsetto merchants Wild Beasts are heading out to support their highly anticipated new album Present Tense (tour starts 26 Mar, Albert Hall , Manchester , ticketmaster.co.uk) . . . Wirral electronica wunderkind Evian Christ is putting on another Trance Party (21 Mar, Oval Space, E2, ovalspace.co.uk). This time it features the gold-toothed grin of rapper Travi$ Scott, UK funky man Lil Silva and a live performance from Numbers' sherbet-coated pop lover SOPHIE . . . Finally, prepare yourself for the return of Brighouse's finest Britpop hangers-on, Embrace! Yes, the McNamaras are back with a new self-titled album and an "intimate" tour in Scotland to road-test it on (tour starts 13 Feb, Fat Sam's, Dundee , ticketmaster.co.uk).
