New film to document Oasis’s 1996 Knebworth gigs

Liam and Noel Gallagher are executive producing a new feature documentary about the Knebworth concerts their band Oasis played in August 1996.

Director Jake Scott described it as “a story driven entirely by the music, a rock’n’roll experience, told in the moment, like a visual stream-of-consciousness that is built around the extensive archive footage from the event”. He said there would be “no on-camera interviews or unnecessary celebrity recollections”.

The film will be released in cinemas later in 2021, to mark the 25th anniversary of the concerts.

It should hopefully trigger some memories for Noel Gallagher, who claims he cannot remember being there. “Genuinely, now, if I close my eyes, I can’t remember walking on stage at Knebworth,” he told Kirsty Young when he appeared on Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs. “I know it took place because there were lots of people there.”
