You won't want to miss this opportunity to party in a galaxy far, far away.

A non-stop, 30-hour French electronic music festival is coming to Ong Jmel, in Tunisia’s southern desert, one of the filming locations of the Star Wars movies, Lonely Planet reported.

After a three year absence, the Dunes Electronic Music Festival — Les Dunes Electroniques — is setting up 30 DJs to spin tunes for almost a day and a half in the famous desert location that Star Wars fans might recognize as Luke Skywalker’s hometown, Mos Espa.

The film sets have been mostly abandoned and left as they were during shooting, which tourism companies in Tunisia have taken advantage of by setting up tours for people who want to get a closer look.

According to Rave Jungle, the festival will feature uninterrupted EDM music from acts such as Behrouz, Benjemy x Lola, Lee Burridge, Sam Shure, and Stimming on two stages. So, it looks like there will be no cantina band.

The festival is a collaboration between the Handicrafts of the Republic of Tunisia, and the Ministry of Tourism, according to DJ Mag. The collaborative project was originally started in 2014 by the same producers who organized Plages Electroniques in the French Riviera, Lonely Planet reported. The team has been known amongst EDM fans for creating one-of-a-kind events in adventurous locations, so festival-goers can party in the most epic way imaginable.

The festival will take place September 21-22, 2019, and tickets start at $61 USD.
