URGNT, a music collective put together by Mark Marczyk of Lemon Bucket Orkestra is putting on this online festival to help support artists and bring music to fans, while festivals and concerts have been cancelled throughout the summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Maclean’s is supporting this showcase. Here’s how you can support URGNT.
