We’d be fairly surprised if Tunisia was already circled for your future holiday plans, or if you even had any optimism left to make holiday plans at all. If so – and if you’re as much as a fan of raves as you are of Star Wars – then the Les Dunes Electroniques festival will be right up your alley.
Les Dunes Electroniques is a 30-hour non-stop rave at Luke Skywalker’s fictional home of Mos Espa in the deserts of Tatooine, which in reality, is just a village at the edge of Tunisia’s southern desert of Ong Jmel in North Africa.
Debuting in 2014, the event – which is a joint project from the Handicrafts of the Republic of Tunisia and the country’s Ministry of Tourism – features 30 local and international artists from the electronic scene across three whole days.
Tickets for Les Dunes generally start from $72, and while it might be a while before any of us can make it over there, you can get a taste of what it actually entails with the 2019 aftermovie below.
