(in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism and Handicrafts of the Republic of Tunisia)

_Episode III_
16 – 17 November 2019

Les Dunes Electroniques is back from November 16 – 17th in the beautiful desert landscapes of Ong Jmel, near Nefta in Tunisia. This one-of-a-kind festival goes down at the gateway to Tunisia’s Southern Desert, globally recognised as the setting of Luke Skywalker’s hometown, Mos Espa, in the original Star Wars franchise. The festival will also extend to the medina of Nefta and Tozeur and offer 30 hours of non stop music plus a multidisciplinary program that will make the whole region vibe to an electronic rhythm for three days amongst exceptional natural scenery. The latest additions to the stunning line-up include Luciano, Apollonia, Audiofly, Daox B2B MAOU, MoodKaze, Nicolas Lutz, Sama and SIS.

Musically, this will be an intoxicating affair with desert house pioneers like Do Not Sit on the Furniture’s Behrouz bringing his deep, emotive sound. Elsewhere, Benjemy and Lola face off for one of their unique live shows and Diynamic label regular Stimming (a master of intricate melodies and infectious grooves) will bring more of the same.

Luciano is the final techno legend and boss of Cadenza Records, French trio Apollonia will serve up a house masterclass, Audiofly are tech house titans and you can also look forward to a Daox B2B MAOU session, set from MoodKaze, sauced out breaks form cult favourite and famously deep digger Nicolas Lutz as well as more from Sama’, and SIS.

More live shows come from local tech innovator Kemist and Holland-based French duo Parallells, who bring their background in jazz and hip-hop as well as a real sense of melody to their shows. Add in the deep, ethnic sounds of Noy Ära and you have a truly eclectic, cultural soundtrack.

This stunning event is carried out with the strong support of the Tunisian Minister of Tourism Mr. René Trabelsi, Ministry of Tourism and Handicrafts of the Republic of Tunisia and Governor of Tozeur, Mr. Aymen Bejaoui. Mr. Jack Lang, president of the Arab World Institute remains faithful to the Electronic Dunes as a godfather.
