Garden Arena is welcoming some of the biggest names in the music industry today as the iHeart Radio Music Festival kicks off.

Plus, “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest will be on-hand doing what he does best, hosting the festival’s two-day events along with sharp-tongued comedian Kathy Griffin, who as you can imagine will be taking a few comedic hits at the singers and musicians.
