Placebo will headline an historic concert at Angkor Wat, an ancient Cambodian temple, to raise awareness and increase prevention of human trafficking.

The UK rock band will top the bill at an MTV EXIT show on December 7th at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed complex near Siem Reap, it has been confirmed.

Also performing will be Duncan Sheik, Australian Kate Miller-Heidke, US group the Click Five and some of Cambodia's biggest recording artists.

MTV EXIT (End Exploitation and Trafficking) is a project of the MTV Europe Foundation to raise awareness and increase prevention of human trafficking and exploitation.

"We are incredibly proud to perform at this important concert," Placebo said.

"We hope that through our music and involvement in this event and the MTV EXIT campaign that millions of people learn about this tragic form of slavery."

Simon Goff, MTV EXIT's Director, added: "Music can be an incredible force for change and through this special concert and the other events that will be held across Cambodia and Asia, MTV EXIT will empower young people and their peers to avoid trafficking."

The show will be the first ever rock concert at Angkor Wat, one of the most famed cultural sites on the planet.

Placebo are currently finishing work on their sixth studio album, due for release next year when the band will commence a worldwide tour.
