HUPzine was a zine released by Hamilton Underground Press (HUP), New Zealand, featuring primarily interviews of Hamilton bands, and bands that have played (or are to play) at Hamilton Underground Press events. First released in January 2016, it was printed at A5 size and cost NZ$3. However, from issue 3, the zine became free thanks to grants from Creative Waikato and Creative Communities NZ. Run sizes began at 40 each for the first two zines, raised to 120 for HUPzine 3, and 200 for HUPzine 4 and 5. The first zines were made available at the HUP shows, and through Mark 1, Nivara Lounge, Auteur House and Browsers Bookstore. The zine lasted 7 issues.
