Directed by Grammy Award-winner Jake Scott, “Oasis Knebworth 1996” celebrates one of the most iconic live concerts of the last 25 years and the special relationship between Oasis and their fans. The story is told through the eyes of the concertgoers and features extensive and never-before-seen archive concert and backstage footage, plus interviews with the band and event organizers.
Oasis’ two record-breaking nights at Knebworth took place on August 10th and 11th in 1996, with over a quarter of a million young music fans from all over the world converging on Knebworth Park, Hertfordshire in England to see the legendary band. All tickets sold out in less than 24 hours, breaking every UK box office record in the process.
Featuring a setlist packed with classics, from the opening salvo of ‘Columbia’ and ‘Acquiesce’, to ‘Champagne Supernova’, ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger,’ ‘Live Forever’, a triumphant, strings backed ‘I Am The Walrus’, and the chart-topping hit, ‘Wonderwall,’ the Knebworth concerts were both the pinnacle of the band’s success and the landmark gathering for a generation.
