(ex) Many people joined the big music event last summer.

My friends and I interpret "the people" in the sentence in two ways. They could be the attendants who went to the event, or they could be the musicians.

What is your opinion? Thanks a lot.

I would say audience. If they were musicians you would call them musicians.

You can 'join' an event by attending it.
