Found this and I also read in today's newspaper that they will be at the "sister festival" Southside (near Tuttlingen). Not sure yet which day will be which one.

Any idea how big these festivals are? 20K, 50K people, or more?

In a news article they talk about a number of 60k at the last one they did. (Apparently in 2017 it was even more people!)

The sister festivals together might add up to about 140k, it is said in various internet sources.
