Bonnaroo claims to be the largest camping event in North America, playing host to somewhere in the neighborhood of 80,000 visitors each year. As tends to happen when tens of thousands of people are thrown together to camp in a field for the better part of a week, there is a lot of wreckage and waste generated. Last year, for instance, those visitors produced 325 tons of compost (processed on site!). Monday morning, as people began to pack up and take off again for real civilization, photographer Kristin Adamcyzk roamed the remnants of the campground, capturing the aftermath.
