Les Dunes Electroniques Is A 30-Hour Desert Rave At ‘Star Wars’ Film Sites

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.
