The footage from the film also features commentary from Noel Gallagher, reflecting how the song changed Oasis" trajectory from indie band to global powerhouse: 

"We were a pretty decent band the night before I wrote 'Live Forever' but it was indie music. 

"The day after I wrote 'Live Forever', we were gonna be the biggest band in the world. I knew it." 


Directed by Grammy Award-winner Jake Scott, Oasis Knebworth 1996 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, also titled Oasis Knebworth 1996, will be released on multi-formats which can be pre-ordered here.

Oasis' two record breaking nights at Knebworth took place on the 10th and 11th August 1996, with over a quarter of a million young music fans from all over the world converging on Knebworth Park, Hertfordshire.  

Featuring a setlist absolutely packed with stone cold classics, these concerts were both the pinnacle of the band's success and the landmark gathering for a generation.
