Hurrah, the BBC has decided to air some coverage from someone else’s music event, rather than pretending it’s a promoter as well as broadcaster and putting on its own stupid festivals in a bid to fuck everything up for the music community it’s meant to support.

It’s the Eden Sessions that has secured some BBC love. The broadcaster is airing three performances that were staged as part of the Eden Sessions programme at the Eden Project in Cornwall earlier this year.

The first features Van Morrison and will air on BBC Four tonight at midnight, with sets by Madness and Bastille to follow in the coming weeks. Though don’t worry about the late time slot, they’ll all be available on the iPlayer too.

Says Eden’s Marketing Director Rita Broe: “It’s brilliant to give fans a chance to re-live these gigs and bring the Eden Sessions to a wider audience thanks to BBC Music. Van Morrison, Madness and Bastille were three massive highlights of an incredibly strong year for our summer shows”.
