ZASH Global Bringing Dandelion EDM Festival to Clinton Square in Syracuse, Featuring Nicky Romero and Deorro

ZASH Global, a brazen startup co-founded by Ted Farnsworth, wants to give a gift to the city ZASH calls home. On Oct. 2, from 4:00 – 11:00 p.m. in Clinton Square, Syracuse, Dandelion will give life to an all-free Electronic Dance Music concert equivalent to the productions found in Miami.

Nicky Romero will fly from Holland to headline the event. Not only does Romero have a claim to fame as a DJ, but he is also a known producer and mogul whose label is at the forefront of modern dance music. From his hits “Toulouse” and “I Could Be The One” to his recent number-one U.S. Dance Radio track “Sometimes'” with DallasK and Xylo, Romero boasts an impressive discography of originals, remixes, and co-productions proving his ability to the ever-changing landscape of electronic music. The success and impact of his label Protocol Recordings has had a hand in producing “Right Now” by Rhianna, “It Should Be Easy” by Britany Spears, along with multiple collaborations with David Guetta… to name a few.


Joining Romero will be Deorro. After more than a decade of developing his genre-blurring musical style, Los Angeles-born producer Erick Orrosquieta, known as Deorro, has become a worldwide-touring DJ, reputable songwriter, and bona fide superstar producer. Deorro will hone in on the variety of styles that he’s become known for, like Melbourne Bounce and Latin.

Andrew Moore, known as Kryoman, will also perform at The Dandelion. He has performed in Syracuse before and no one forgets his performances. Miami-based, but London-born, Kryoman makes his presence known with ten-foot-tall robots suits, equipped with high-powered lights, smoke guns, and high-definition LED mapping. His music techniques include trap and future house. Moore was a dancer at the main stage at Ultra Music Festival Miami and toured with David Guetta, Steve Aoki, the Black Eyed Peas, and Akon.

Additional artists include the EC Twins, SVNF8, Tadeo Fernandez, and Talia Eisset.

The EC Twins have been credited as two of the most influential figures in electronic dance music and thanks to their “British Invasion,” played a large part in the explosion of electronic music in the U.S. They began by performing in small clubs in Los Angeles and invested all of their finances into their music and performances. Their hard work paid off, turning a local fan base into an army of dedicated worldwide followers.

The scene’s newest mysterious producer SVNF8 has been blowing listeners away with mind-altering techno soundscapes on his past few releases. After making his grand mau5trap debut with the alluring single “Twin Flames,” the masked musician is back on the highly-acclaimed imprint’s release radar with the dark but simultaneously uplifting fresh track, “Never Ever.”

After placing his music on the Lomotif app, SVNF8 saw nearly four million views.

“Lomotif’s cutting edge technology and attention to detail is next level. From the editing tools, quality, simplicity, and fan interaction; it’s a must for everyday media networking,” said SVNF8.

Tadeo Fernandez and Talia Eisset are some of the most influential Electronic Dance Music influencers around. Fernandez has tracks that are achieving top charts and millions of plays, as well as the biggest electronic music, viral, and top playlists. His singular style and energetic club and festival shows performed all over the world have helped to build a solid career and reputation.

Eisset is well recognized as an MTV star and actress, but also for her shows at festivals and clubs throughout the world. Playing on stages such as Resistance by Ultra, Medusa Festival Mexico, Storage Festival, and a recent tour in Ibiza playing in the most iconic venues Pacha, Bora Bora, and Carnero. Involved in DJing, producing, modeling, and acting, Eisset is always preparing to get better and better to give the best shows possible.

Along with plenty of food trucks, cold brews, and wine, Dandelion will educate you. Being in the entertainment world, ZASH understands the importance of the arts on culture, quality of life, education, and fueling the economy. “Oftentimes, arts programs are the first to be cut when budgets are lean,” reminds Farnsworth. “We want to give back to this city by supporting arts programs to our youth.”

Redhouse Arts Center is a professional, not-for-profit theater serving the community by providing leading and inclusive experiences through its theater and educational programs. In schools, they reach thousands of students each day to engage them in learning through arts-based lessons.

“We are proud of our partnership with Syracuse City Schools and the impact we make on student success. Using the arts as a process rather than a product helps to engage students in a new way,” said Samara Hannah, Redhouse Executive Director.

Redhouse also offers classes and camps during school breaks and produces a professional theatre season. Donations to support this program are accepted at Redhouse City Schools Program

ZASH Global Media and Entertainment Corporation is an evolved network of synergetic companies working together to disrupt the media and entertainment industry as we know it today. One recent ZASH acquisition was Lomotif, a video editing app that competes with companies like TikTok. Lomotif is spearheading new technology to create and edit videos.

Lomotif’s biggest highlight is a patented tool that allows creators to edit and stitch together multiple clips,” said Lomotif CEO and founder, Paul Yang. “But this does not mean the user needs to bring five different clips to create. The tool also has an evolving library that suggests clips based on any keyword you feed in, much like Google recommendations.”

Lomotif recently struck a deal with Universal Music to license its library of music. Lomotif users now have access to thousands of songs by Universal Music Group artists, including Olivia Rodrigo, to use in their video clips.

Stop by the Lomo video booth for the chance to create a music video and upload it on the Lomo app. A&R Executives will review auditions and see if any potential artists have a chance to move forward with Lomo Records. Then step on the red carpet in front of the ZASH/Lomo step and repeat! Snap your pic and post it on your page. The first 100 people to visit the Lomo tent at Dandelion will receive free ZASH merchandise. Can’t make it to the event? The full six hours will be available to live stream also available on the Lomo app.

Magnifi U offers courses online and because they are just launching a beta testing site, you can get their classes for a limited time for free.

“This will be a festival like CNY has never seen before,” said ZASH’s Media Relations Specialist, Kimberly Rossi. “The stage, production, laser show, C02 cannons, the artists, and a few extra surprises will bring the whole Electronic Dance Music experience to heightened levels.” Syracuse University students can enjoy an orange grove that will be a sectioned-off area dedicated to SU students.

Dandelion will be hosted by none other than the Voice of Dance Music. For 24 years, the VODM has hosted Ultra Music Festival, the world’s largest touring festival. His talents have been showcased in front of millions, spanning over three decades, more than 75 cities and six continents around the globe.
