Synopsis

On 10th and 11th August 1996, 250,000 young music fans converged on Knebworth Park to see Oasis play two record breaking, era defining shows. The landmark concerts sold out in under a day with over 2% of the UK population attempting to buy tickets. This was a time when the UK was slowly recovering from a decade of recession. A surging confidence in arts and culture ushered in Cool Britannia and Oasis meteoric rise reflected the country's new-found conviction and swagger. Featuring a setlist packed from beginning to end with stone cold classics, including Champagne Supernova, Wonderwall and Don't Look Back In Anger, the Knebworth concerts were both the pinnacle of the band's success and the landmark gathering for a generation. Oasis Knebworth 1996 is the story of that weekend and the special relationship between Oasis and their fans that made it possible. It is told through the eyes of the fans who were there, with additional interviews with the band and concert organisers. Directed by Jake Scott from extensive concert and exclusive never-before seen footage, this is a joyful and at times poignant cinematic celebration of one of the most important concert events of the last 25 years.

Bilblical

Arguably one of the most iconic gigs from one of the biggest 90s bands ever, this documentary (and accompanying soundtrack - available as as old-school album or on Spotify) chronicles Oasis' two incredible nights at Knebworth Park in August 1996, playing to 250,000 fans.

Appropriately, this documentary focuses on the fans, with numerous accounts of getting tickets (back when you had to either physically wait in line or call a ticket hotline), travelling to Knebworth Park, and the gig itself, or fans at home taping the Sunday night gig from the radio (which required incredible skill and timing).

There's also interviews with Noel, Liam and Bonehead to top it off.

This is Oasis at the peak of their powers (especially Liam's vocals), before the infighting between the brothers took up all the headlines as the hype of 'Oasismania' began to fade away.

Crucially, there's no cutaways to talking heads in a lone room here: all of the footage is in the here and now of 1996. It makes the concert even more magical as you're transported to a time with no smart phones, no social media, and no texting - this allows everyone (including the band) to soak in the moment and the history.

If you're after a more comprehensive account of Oasis' history, check out the 2016 documentary "Supersonic": this one is for the fans, and about being in the moment for two of the biggest nights in rock and roll history.

Great snapshot into the 90's music scene

Watching this remembering being in the crowd filled me with sort of joy and sorrow of how good Oasis were in the beginning and how much the 2 men childs leading the band messed it all up Great documentary on a fantastic time to have been alive , going to gigs with Cool Britannia in full swing

I just wished Liam and Noel called it quits after Knebworth '96 as it was all down hill ever since.

Once in a lifetime

This concert could not happen today. This was a once in a lifetime concert . Everything was completely pure and innocent. Even the brothers got along back then.
