Les Dunes Electroniques
Les Dunes Electroniques is an electronic music festival held in Ong Jemel, Tunisia every February.

Ong Jemel lies within the Sahara, making the festival seem like a bizarre oasis. Aside from the huge sand dunes this area is also known for its role in the original star wars films as the fictional planet of Tatooine. The film set remains there to this day and revellers at the festival are able to walk amongst it.

The festival attracts many different cultures.  It is not unusual to come across casually dressed people alongside revellers in full star wars attire and people in traditional Tunisian dress.

Due to political pressures the festival was prevented from happening until 2014 and has a huge police presence to prevent any potential terrorist attacks. Police helicopters regularly fly over the festival.
