Trafalgar Releasing and Oasis have debuted a trailer for the upcoming music documentary ‘Oasis Knebworth 1996.’
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.
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. Tickets went on sale on 11th May 1996. Queues formed outside local record shops and ticket offices overnight, and fans around the world spent the day on their landline phones trying to get through to constantly engaged booking lines. 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.
Directed by Grammy Award-winner Jake Scott, Noel Gallagher and Liam Gallagher serve as executive producers.
Also announced today, a full live album and DVD/Blu-ray, also titled ‘Oasis Knebworth 1996’, is due for release on 19th November via Big Brother Recordings Ltd.
The documentary is released in cinemas worldwide from September 23.
