Oscar-winning film by Chloé Zhao.
On the 10th and 11th of August 1996, 250,000 young music fans gathered at Knebworth Park to watch Oasis perform two record-breaking, era-defining shows.
The concerts were sold out within a day, with as many as 2.5 million people trying to buy tickets. The gigs came at a time when the UK was slowly but surely emerging from a long recession. A wave of confidence in their own art and culture, called "Cool Britannia", spread through the country: Oasis' rise to fame reflected this renewed confidence. With a setlist packed with absolute hits such as Champagne Supernova, Wonderwall and Don't Look Back in Anger, the two days at Knebworth were both a high point in the band's success and a milestone for an entire generation.
Oasis Knebworth 1996 tells the story of that weekend and the special bond between Oasis and its fans. This story is told through the eyes of these fans, but also through additional interviews with the band and the concert organisers. Director Jake Scott created the film from hours of concert footage and never-seen-before footage. An exuberant and at times touching cinematic celebration of one of the most important concerts of the past 25 years.
