Gluten-Free Food “A Massive Priority” For Soundwave 2016

Written by Tom Williams on June 17, 2015

UPDATE 17/12/15 5.50pm: Soundwave 2016 has been officially cancelled.

There’s good news for the gluten intolerant rockers among us, with Soundwave Festival boss AJ Maddah promising that gluten-free chow will be “a massive priority” at Soundwave 2016.

Posting to Twitter this evening, Maddah reflected on his own gluten situation, saying, “Turns out gluten intolerance is real. If you experience constant dull headaches & indigestion, go get it checked out. It’ll change your life.”

When a punter 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 diet I feel tremendous.” View his series of tweets, below.

Given Maddah’s comments, there should be more gluten-free options when fesitval-goers hit up the Soundwave food trucks in January, meaning less stress for gluten intolerant punters.

Aside from its food lineup, Soundwave’s 2016 artist lineup is yet to be announced, but it’s been suggested that it may arrive as early as July.
