Film descriptionAdd to favourite list
On August 10 and 11, 1996, 250,000 Brit rock fans gathered in Knebworth Park for the Oasis concerts. Tickets sold out in less than a day, with more than 2% of the UK population hunting for them. And for good reason: two shows hosted by Oasis on the legendary country estate have become symbols of the era. If you want to see the 1990s from their best, dazzling side, this is the place for you.
It was a time when Britain was slowly recovering from a decade of recession. Progress in the economy was accompanied by the flourishing of art and the growth of national identity. The meteoric rise of Oasis is part of the unique atmosphere for which the hit phrase Cool Britannia was coined. The Knebworth concerts featuring classic hits (Champagne Supernova; Wonderwall; Don’t Look Back In Anger) are the peak of the band's success and a defining event for an entire generation.
Oasis: Knebworth 1996 chronicles that great weekend and the special relationship between Oasis and their fans, without which nothing would have happened. We will see the events through the eyes of fans - eyewitnesses to the show, hear interviews with the band members and concert organizers. Jake Scott's film also includes previously unseen footage. Music, testimonials, memories: it all adds up to a joyous and poignant cinematic celebration of one of the most important musical events of the last quarter century.
