[Icecast] Large Amount of Listeners

I have to setup an online radio to support 5K users initially and  
grow into 80k users later.

1.Has anyone any tips on this?
2.Would you recommend serving more than 2000 listeners on a single  
3.Are there any redundance features on the relay server mode?
I was thinking about setting up 2 servers to receive the encoded  
stream and then setting up the relaying servers so they try the first  
server, and on failure, continue to the second (or more) source  
servers. In that case, there's no one single machine on which the  
whole system relies.
