Oasis Knebworth 1996 is the story of the relationship between Oasis and their fans that made the two biggest concerts of the 90s possible.

Oasis Knebworth 1996

Yesterday marked 25 years since the first of the two outdoor gigs that Oasis performed at Knebworth Park in August 1996, which were witnessed by over a quarter of a million music fans from all over the world.

It is not a concert documentary, per se, although it’s being marketed as one.

With 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 a landmark for a generation.

Here’s the trailer:

The official synopsis reads:

“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 & culture ushered in Cool Britannia and Oasis meteoric rise reflected the country’s newfound conviction & swagger. 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.”

A new Oasis Knebworth 1996 live album, as well as a DVD/Blu-Ray of the film, has also been announced and is set to be released via Big Brother Recordings Ltd on November 19th, physical formats include a Super Deluxe Box Set (which features triple LP, 2xCD and triple DVD) plus replicas of the original gig memorabilia which will be exclusively available from the band’s online store. Pre-order is available here.
