Les Dunes Electroniques
Set in the Sahara desert in the old sets George Lucas built to film the original Star Wars, this unique and ambitious rave puts modern electronic music in a serene, yet foreboding environment, while a predominantly French contingent -- dressed up as Jedis and Sith Lords -- dances through the weekend. It's little surprise that Les Dunes Electroniques creates an otherworldly feel, given that it began life as Tatooine, but the dunes, deserts, and sunsets, all soundtracked by leading electronic music talent, truly will have you looking around for a second sun. Alas, safety concerns led to the cancellation of the 2016 party, but here's looking ahead, in true Star Wars fashion, to future installments.
