AKA, the complete and total trainwreck that is Dashcon, a con based around Tumblr. I stumbled across the amazing awfulness in these two threads at Fail Fandom Anon.

Just...holy shit. Highlights include the world's saddest ball pit, attendees being panicked/desperate/gullible enough to throw $17,000 at the con organizers in half an hour because the organizers claimed the hotel was going to kick them out, embarrassment-squick over fans' actions to hold strong against the "evil corporation" that is the hotel (guys, I feel so damn sorry for that hotel's staff), and an appalling lack of organizational skills on the part of the people running the con.

ETA: Another thread at FFA and there's a write-up at Fandom Wank. Among the other hilarity to be found in the links throughout the threads, somebody's created a playlist for Dash-con.
