DJs Nicky Romero and Derrero appear on the flyer for the Dandelion Music Festival in Syracuse on Oct. 2, 2021.

A new electronic dance music festival is coming to Syracuse this weekend, prompting the closure of several downtown streets.

The free Dandelion EDM Music Festival will feature live DJs, artists and food trucks in Clinton Square from 4 to 11 p.m. Saturday. Performers include Nicky Romero and Deorro.

In-person attendees must obtain a free ticket to reserve a space at the event, hosted by Zash Global and Entertainment Media. But the performances will also be live streamed on the video-sharing app Lomotif, which Zash says is a TikTok competitor.

The festival will alter or shutdown traffic patterns around Clinton Square on Saturday and for part of Sunday. According to a city advisory, West Water Street between Franklin and Clinton streets will become a two-way street. Sections of West Water Street, Erie Boulevard West and Clinton Street near the event site will be blocked off.
