Dunes Electroniques music festival rocks Tunisian desert

A two-day electronic music festival also called “Les Dunes Electroniques” started Saturday in the southern Tunisian desert where the Star Wars movie was filmed, with attendance of thousands of fans and star DJs.

At the sunset over the lunar-like landscape of the Sahara desert in Tozeur region near the Algerian border, people danced on dunes in the town of Nefta under heavy security protection.

The festival is organised by a Franco-Tunisian hotelier with the support of the Tourism and Handicrafts Ministry.
