This is my first Bonnaroo ever (yay! ;D), and I haven't seen info about this anywhere- If you plan on cooking food there, where/how do you wash dishes?
I'm camping with a bunch of foodies and they love to cook, so we were curious about this all worked. My feeling is that we should try to avoid cooking anything there because it'd be a waste of water and a hassle to clean up after, but tasty chow is always excellent.

Have a hanging water bag and a bucket, wash in bucket then rinse with water bag over the bucket. Dump water in a place where it wont be a nuisance like under your car. If big chunks of food are in the water may want to walk it out further to dump it.
I at least want to do breakfast like ham, potatoes, and eggs. Lasts me for quite a while and cuts down on food cost. Since I am solo this year I may just simplify this year.

When i camped with a group, we always did group meals and usually had enough to feed our neighbors as well. We used the three bucket system: one soapy water, one rinse water, one weak bleach water. You scrape everything REALLY WELL into your compost bucket (okay, maybe that's four buckets), wash in the soapy water, swish in the rinse water, dip in the bleach water and let dry. We changed the soapy water every couple days, the rinse water every day, and the bleach water not at all. Worked fine for about 10 people. We hauled the buckets to the waste water collection tank at the wash station, but for smaller wash needs under the car is fine.
This year, I'm solo so I'm using the cans-and-a-spoon system

We used clorox wipes to wipe clean, then paper towels to wipe the excess bleach off. Worked fine. But even that was a hassle. I'm eating all vendor food this year. It's 100x better than anything I could cook at camp.
