in front of the numerous crowd of supporters

or

in front of the numerous supporters


I want to say that there will be a big attendance at the event but I don't want to throw exact numbers...

    You can't say "numerous crowd".

    You can say numerous supporters, but that does not mean a big attendance.

    in front of the huge crowd perhaps.

    Huge crowd, numerous supporters -- use numerous with countable nouns. Numerous, however, seems small to me when when you're talking about "big attendance at the event." At some point, you may want to get into numbers -- hundreds, thousands, etc.

    Great, thanks

    How about "thousands and thousands of supporters"

    Basically there will be a crowd of 100 000 people at the event but I don't want to imply that every single one of them will be at that very event...people will be on other stages of the event too...
