Startup Showcase: Hidden Bands – Unleashing the Power of Music Discovery through Gamification

Welcome to, where we bring you the latest and most innovative startups from the Canadian business landscape. In this Startup Showcase, we are thrilled to present Hidden Bands, a groundbreaking company based in Victoria, British Columbia. Hidden Bands is revolutionizing the music industry by creating an immersive music discovery experience, akin to Pokémon GO, that connects users with unreleased and exclusive music from talented artists.

Unveiling the Musical Journey

Hidden Bands takes music discovery to a whole new level with its innovative app that guides users through an exciting quest to find hidden musical gems in the real world. Just like Pokémon GO captivated millions, Hidden Bands invites music enthusiasts to explore their surroundings, follow a captivating map, and capture exclusive free music along the way. It’s a treasure hunt for incredible sounds, connecting users with talented artists in an interactive and engaging manner.

Bridging the Gap between Artists and Fans

Hidden Bands not only provides a thrilling experience for users but also offers tremendous benefits to artists. By linking the captured songs to popular streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music, as well as social platforms such as YouTube, Instagram, and Bandcamp, Hidden Bands ensures that artists gain exposure and users can easily consume more of their captivating content. This unique approach boosts discoverability, allowing artists to reach a broader audience and foster deeper connections with their fans.

Empowering Artists with Analytics and Direct Communication

Hidden Bands goes above and beyond the capabilities of traditional streaming and social platforms by providing artists with comprehensive analytics. Artists can gain insights into song plays at a hyper-geographic level, enabling them to understand their fanbase and plan tours more strategically. Additionally, Hidden Bands sets itself apart by allowing artists to communicate directly with users through the app. This direct line of communication opens up new avenues for artists to engage with their fans, share exclusive content, and build a loyal following.


Hidden Bands is transforming the way we discover and engage with music. By gamifying the experience and adding a touch of excitement to the music discovery process, the app captures the imagination of users while providing a platform for artists to showcase their talents. With its commitment to free access for both users and artists, Hidden Bands fills the void of discoverability in the streaming era. So, join the adventure, uncover hidden melodies, and support the rising stars of the music industry.
