What is starting icecast?

If it's controlled by systemd, you probably want to add
"LimitNOFILE=50000" to icecast's .service file.

If it's the .deb produced by Xiph (which doesn't have a .service
file), you'll probably want to edit /etc/init.d/icecast2 (or
/etc/default/icecast2) and add

  prlimit --pid $$ --nofile=50000

to it.
