Duna Jam is a private festival held in Sardinia, Italy and active since 2006. Unlike most festivals held at venues or at an outdoor campground area, Duna Jam is held on the coast at different parts of an island in Sardinia. Because of the unorthodox nature of the festival, the crowds are limited to 150 and more of a "gathering of friends" or a "birthday party" than a proper festival. The event spans roughly an entire week with bands performing throughout that time period.

Duna Jam is held on various parts of the island and much of the details since 2010 has been kept in secrecy, adding to the mysterious and inclusive nature of the event. Almost all of the live performances are held outside, replicating the "generator party" nature of the Desert scene but with the added twist of exotic locales within the island. While the festival has mostly employed desert rock and psychedelic in the context of the same performers jamming in locations over several days, Duna Jam has since evolved into a private festival featuring a host of performing acts ranging from a wider variety of genres such as blues, doom metal, sludge metal, indie rock, experimental and hip-hop.
