There will also be a full live album and DVD/Blu-ray, also titled Oasis Knebworth 1996, released on November 19.
Directed by Grammy Award-winner Jake Scott, the film is described as "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".
Oasis' two night-stand at Knebworth, also the site of legendary concerts by led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, on August 10 and 11, 1996 was the largest concert of the '90s and is seen as the pinnacle of the Manchester band’s rapid rise.
The Knebworth shows also served as the jumping off point for the 2016 Oasis documentary, Supersonic.
The new film 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.
Tickets for the shows went on sale on 11th May 1996 and all 250,000 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.
The film features a set-list that ranges from the opening salvo of Columbia and Acquiesce, all the way to Champagne Supernova, Don’t Look Back in Anger, Live Forever, an orchestra-backed I Am The Walrus, and the first song from the 1990s to cross one billion streams on Spotify, Wonderwall.
