    Celiac.com 07/30/2015 - Soundwave is an annual music festival held in major cities around Australia. The festival originated in Perth, Western Australia, before expanding to the other Australian cities in 2007. It features a number of international and Australian music acts, from various genres including rock, metal and punk.

    Maddah shared his own gluten experience on Twitter saying: Turns out gluten intolerance is real. If you experience constant dull headaches and indigestion, go get it checked out. It'll change your life.

    When someone replied saying,"It's so hard to find gluten free food at Soundwave,” Maddah quickly responded with,"It'll be a massive priority next year. You can be sure of that.”

    Replying to a separate Twitter user, Maddah added,"I have suffered for seven years and never suspected bread. After three days on [gluten-free] diet I feel tremendous.”

    Maddah's comments mean the food trucks of Soundwave 2016, which begins in January, will likely give attendees more gluten-free food options.

    Meanwhile, Soundwave's 2016 artist lineup has just been announced.

I don't doubt that there are some celebrities who have actually found benefit and may sincerely suffer from Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance, or worse, celiac disease.
