Edinburgh set to be ‘enchanted’ by Taylor Swift

Posted: 28th May 2024

With just over a week to go until global pop superstar Taylor Swift arrives in Edinburgh, the City of Edinburgh Council has released advice for residents, businesses, and visitors.

The three sold out shows taking place at Scottish Gas Murrayfield on Friday 7, Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 June will go down as some of the most significant performances ever seen here in Scotland’s capital city.

To ensure our city maintains its vibrancy the Council will be ensuring the key areas surrounding Murrayfield will be tidied up all three nights after each show. They will also be dedicating extra litter collectors at Roseburn Park from 4pm – 1am daily.

The Council has asked that you only travel to Murrayfield and the surrounding area if you have a ticket.

There will be a number of Council Marshalls on hand to assist Swifities navigate the area.

Culture and Communities Convener, Councillor Val Walker said:

“As we get ready to welcome hundreds of thousands of Swifties to our vibrant city, we are eager for everyone to have an enjoyable experience, not only at the show, but on their way before and after. Whilst we relish hosting the biggest and best events and want everyone attending to truly enjoy themselves, it’s important that we’re conscious of our residents.

We ask that visitors are considerate and respectful of them whilst enjoying our fantastic capital city. These concerts are just the start of an amazing summer of events and culture here in Edinburgh.”
