Everyone say a big thank you to the Renaissance Schaumburg! We’ve gotten 20 more rooms for Thursday night, and we will be working on Sunday night’s rooms next. However, we’ve already sold some of the rooms since we got them, leaving us with 19 rooms on Thursday night, and 5 rooms on Sunday. Please make sure to book in advance if you need rooms on Thursday or Sunday night!
We have nearly 45% of our room block filled, so please make sure to book a room as soon as you are able! We want to make sure you get the best of everything at DashCon, and the Renaissance Schaumburg is part of that experience!
This Halloween, DashCon-goers, will be DashCon’s first big lottery drawing. On October 31, 2014, and the last day of each month thereafter (through June 2014), DashCon’s Secret Police will choose 10 lucky badge-holders to attend the Welcome to Night Vale Meet & Greet/Autograph Session at DashCon 2014. Under close watch of the hooded figures, 10 attendees will be chosen each month via random number generator and announced during a LiveStream on our YouTube channel. DashCon Community Admins have put together a few helpful tips for winning.
- You must be registered for DashCon to enter the DashCon Lottery (as proven by your Invoice ID)
- Names will be chosen ONLY from a list of those registered to play
- Only one entry will be allowed per attendee (and we will be checking)
- The sooner you enter, the higher your chances of winning
If you registered a team or have been placed on a team through the SWLH Singles, you should have just received an email confirming your status as registered. If you believe you are registered but have not yet received an email, please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you signed up as a single and have yet to be placed on a team, this doesn’t apply. You will be notified after you’ve been placed. Sorry for any delays!

You asked for it, so here it is. An up-to-date list of panels that are

Please wait with us! We’re going to work and get more moved over onto that day, but we can’t guarantee it. Please reblog this post if you need a room on Thursday night and we will do our best to accommodate you!
More news on the situation tomorrow, we will do our best to get more rooms for you!
Additionally, Friday and Saturday rooms are nearly half gone, if you need only those days please make sure to book sometime soon! We estimate the remaining rooms will last ~2 months or less. Sunday has only 16 rooms left.
DashCon Admin Q and A!
The DashCon admins are hosting a Google Hangout this weekend! Friday September 13th at 10PM EST they will be there live to answer your questions, explain any procedures or panels, and to generally be derps.
Come join us and bring any and all questions you have.
Hope to see you there!
Night Vale is a friendly desert community where the sun is hot, the moon is beautiful, and mysterious lights pass overhead while its inhabitants all pretend to sleep, but from July 11-13, 2014, Night Vale invades DashCon.
DashCon 2014 is proud to announce that the Welcome to Night Vale crew will be joining the guest list for our inaugural event. Attendees can expect a both a live performance and Q&A session. There will also be a private meet & greet event, where you’ll have the opportunity to meet the writers, Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor, and the voice of Night Vale, Cecil Baldwin.
Watch this space for more information on how to attend the meet & greet! For now, we can only say that you should prepare to find yourself at the meet & greet with no memory of how you got there and no obvious entry point, with only a brick and a small window provided for your eventual escape. Settle for nothing less than the full DashCon experience. ALL HAIL THE DASHCON!
But wait! Don’t be caught unprepared, Eternal Scouts:

To properly welcome Amber, who lives in the ~future~, we’ll be hosting a ‘night blogging anon hour’ tonight. We want this to be the strangest, crackiest anon hour that has ever dared exist. Don’t let her down!
Night Blogging Anon Hour will begin tonight at 11pm CST/12am EST. We’ll be sure to tag accordingly, so as not to flood your dashes. Please be on the look out for #nb anon hour (and simply #anon hour for ‘normal’ questions).
Give us your weirdest, Tumblr. We can take it!
