Marking 25 years to the day since the first night of the record breaking Knebworth 1996 concerts, Oasis have today unveiled the official trailer for the eagerly anticipated new cinematic documentary, OASIS KNEBWORTH 1996, which will be released in cinemas worldwide from 23 September 2021 via Trafalgar Releasing.
A full live album and DVD/Blu-ray, also titled ‘OASIS KNEBWORTH 1996’, is due for release on 19th November 2021 via Big Brother Recordings Ltd.
Directed by Grammy Award-winner Jake Scott, ‘OASIS KNEBWORTH 1996’ is a joyful and at times poignant cinematic celebration of one of the most iconic live concert events of the last 25 years, driven entirely by the music, and the fans’ own experiences of that monumental weekend.
The film celebrates the story of the special relationship between Oasis and their fans that made the largest concert of the ‘90’s possible. It is told entirely in the moment through the eyes of the fans who were there, built around extensive and never before seen archive concert and backstage footage from the event, with additional interviews with the band and concert organisers.
The special live album and DVD/Blu-ray will be available on various formats including 2 CD and Triple LP on heavyweight vinyl, with the digital version of the album featuring HD audio.
The DVD will be released as a triple disc set including the ‘OASIS KNEBWORTH 1996’ cinematic documentary plus both nights of the live concert in full, with the Blu-ray in single disc format.
Limited edition formats include the 2CD with DVD of the cinematic documentary, plus a Super Deluxe Box Set including the triple LP, 2CD and triple DVD plus replicas of the original gig memorabilia, available exclusively from the band’s online store.
Oasis’ two record breaking nights at Knebworth took place on 10th & 11th August 1996, with over a quarter of a million young music fans from all over the world converging on Knebworth Park, Hertfordshire to see the legendary sets. All tickets sold out in less than 24 hours, breaking every UK box office record in the process. Organisers estimated the band could have sold two or three times as many tickets, with over 2% of the population of the UK attempting to buy tickets.
OASIS KNEBWORTH 1996 is produced by Black Dog Films for Kosmic Kyte Ltd. Noel Gallagher and Liam Gallagher serve as executive producers. It is financed and distributed by Sony Music Entertainment and will be released theatrically by Trafalgar Releasing.
