Last night saw the debut of Front Left Live; a showcase of the acts that Spotify listeners in Australia are vibing right now. With minimal details outside of a description detailing a “unique live playlist”, as well as a line up featuring a bunch of our favourite Aussie artists we were unsure what to expect.

To describe the event in a single statement – it was LIT. Spotify’s first live playlist event in the southern hemisphere was one for the books. For five hours the crowd at Sydney’s Carriageworks were lucky enough to check out sets from Baker Boy, Cosmos Midnight and King Princess, as well as a one off collaboration between CXLOE and Kota Banks.

Watch: Kota Banks – “Child”


There’s no better sound to hear when entering a venue than the opening notes of “Child” by Kota Banks, but when CXLOE joined in on the harmonies, the set was taken to the next level. The first acts on the bill proved they mean business, especially when they busted out an incredible cover of Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream”.
