The third edition of Les Dunes Electroniques will be held on November 16-17 in the desert dunes of Ong Jmal in Nefta, Tunisian south where George Lucas’s film ‘Stars Wars’ was shot.
The event includes entertainment, culture and tourism with house music on two stages against a backdrop of sand and traditional Tunisian homes.
Since their launch in 2014, the “Dunes Electroniques” has always “benefited from the support of the Ministry of Tourism and Handicrafts, without which it has never been possible to organise this event,” said French-Tunisian Patrick Ouergui, organiser of the Dunes at a meeting with the press on Thursday.
Attending the news conference, Minister of Tourism and Handicrafts René Trabelsi voiced “pride to participate in this event as Minister of Tourism”, commending the importance of the event as a “national and tourist event that will highlight the Tunisian desert”.
Trabelsi recalled that in ten days Tunisian tourism will be present in London to take part in the World Travel Market (WTM) exhibition scheduled from November 4 to 6. He announced that a promotional action in favour of les Dunes will be made from the British Capital to English tourists.
In turn, Patrice Bergamini, European Union Ambassador to Tunisia, considered that “the Tunisian desert is one of the last sub-Saharan deserts where one can come and enjoy all that the desert and its populations can offer in complete safety”.
