For the second year in a row, a music festival was held on the fictional planet of Tatooine from Star Wars, also known in Tunisia as Ong Jemal. Vignette Interactive documented the rave and the famous sets all around the country.
The cult classic Star Wars films used southern Tunisia as a backdrop for many scenes, where pieces of Tunisian culture, including the traditional robes worn by old men, made their way into the movies as costumes for the Jawas. The festival, Dunes Electronique, was promoted as a way to bring tourism back to Tunisia and also to help preserve the Star Wars sets.
