30 Hour rave takes place on a Star Wars desert location this summer


Les Dunes Electroniques was founded in 2014.

It started as a collaboration between the Ministry of Tourism and Handicrafts of the Republic of Tunisia. After three years away, the festival makes a welcome return in 2019 from September 21-22nd.

The action goes down at Ong Jmel, near Nefta, at the gateway to Tunisia’s southern desert. The site is globally recognised as the setting of Luke Skywalker’s hometown, Mos Espa, from the original Star Wars franchise.

The line-up will be unveiled very soon, featuring up to 30 hours of music. They will come from the Tunisian, French and international electronic scenes.

You can grab a ticket here or need a hotel head to booking.com.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
