Part of Meltdown

The iconic alternative rock band takes to the stage for Robert Smith’s Meltdown. Support comes from Icelandic synth-punk trio kaelan mikla.

Placebo's self-titled 1996 debut album helped pave the way for a strong shift in British music, acting as an antithesis to Britpop and inspiring a generation of bands to follow them.

Placebo went on to claim their place in British music history with five Top 10 albums in the UK, collaborating with legends including David Bowie, Robert Smith and Michael Stipe.

With 12 million albums sold to date, the group continue to play sold-out tours and festival headline slots across the globe.

Placebo recently celebrated 20 years of music-making with the release of a retrospective hits album, A Place For Us To Dream.
