A new electronic music festival, Les Dunes Electroniques Festival, aims to remedy Tunisian tensions by creating a getaway experience with a unique twist. The festival takes place at sets from the Star Wars films, including the fictional town Mos Espa seen in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. These sets inspire attendees to dress in Star Wars costumes and attire, creating a makeshift Star Wars rave. While protests attempted to squash the festival, Dunes Electroniques was held without any violent outbursts or deaths.
