Oasis Knebworth 1996

Presented by California Film Institute and Downtown San Rafael Arts District at Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center, San Rafael CA

Sep 23 - 24 2021
Oasis Knebworth 1996

Landmark concert – told through the eyes of the fans who were there, plus band/organizer interviews

Special Event:  Playing in-person at the Smith Rafael Film Center

On 10th & 11th August 1996, 250,000 young music fans converged on Knebworth Park to see Oasis play two record breaking, era defining shows.

The landmark concerts sold out in under a day with over 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 meteoric rise reflected the country’s new-found conviction and swagger.

Featuring a setlist packed from beginning to end with stone cold 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 the 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 most important concert events of the last 25 years.
