Music festivals can feel like an otherworldly experience. But if you’re a festival veteran looking for a new experience, the Dunes Electroniques music festival truly transports you to another world.

Taking place in Tunisia, on the set used to film Star Wars’ Mos Espa desert, this festival will feature 30 DJs playing across two arenas for 30 hours nonstop. The set previously served as the site of the music festival back in 2014, and it’s making a triumphant return this year.

The original mission of Dunes Electroniques when it was first created back in 2014 is still true today — to develop tourism and jobs in often-neglected parts of Tunisia.

The festival will take place from September 21 to 22, with tickets starting at $61. The festival is a one-hour flight from Tunis, the country’s capital.
