Inpress was a free weekly tabloid-sized music magazine (street press) that was published in Melbourne[1][2] and was released in Geelong and Mornington Peninsula areas of Victoria, Australia. The magazine was published by Street Press Australia[2] on a weekly basis every Wednesday.

The magazine comprised three main sections: All music news, features and reviews fall under the Inpress banner, arts and film is covered by Interval, and the central section is dance music/urban music and nightclubbing magazine Zebra, which is also distributed separately from Inpress. The editors of the paper are Andrew Mast (Managing Editor), Shane O'Donohue (Editor), Kris Swales (Zebra Editor) and Daniel Crichton-Rouse (Interval Editor).

Inpress also frequently published 'special features', such as their yearly Melbourne International Comedy Festival guide.

Inpress contained many popular features, including local cartoonist and musician Fred Negro's weekly cult comic strip, Pub. Other notable features within Inpress included Finish Line (industry news column), Sugarfoot's SoDa Pop (pop gossip/news column - a differently named version of which had previously appeared in Beat Magazine[3] until early 2004; Jeff Jenkins' Howzat! (indie rock and pop news), Clem Bastow's Singled Out (singles reviews column) and Anthony Carew's (some would say) notorious film reviews column in Interval, Film Carew.

Interests associated with Inpress publishers Craig and Leigh Treweek recently bought influential Sydney street press Drum Media.[4] Craig Treweek said at the time that "This is a great opportunity to build a strong music media outlet that is supportive of the local music scene at a grass roots level."

Myf Warhurst is a former editor.

In August 2013 Inpress and other two magazines of the company, Drum Media and Time Off, were merged under a new brand, The Music.[1]
