Details

On 10 and 11 August 1996, a quarter of a million young music fans converged on Knebworth Park to see Oasis play two record-breaking, era-defining shows. The landmark concerts had sold out in less than a day, with more than 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’s meteoric rise reflected the country's new-found conviction and swagger. Featuring a setlist packed from beginning to end with instant 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 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 biggest concert events of the last 25 years.

Please note: This screening will have 100% capacity, with tickets available for all seats.
