Concerts by Taylor Swift in Edinburgh create seismic activity on an earthquake scale.

The most seismic activity of any of Taylor Swift’s performances occurred during her rendition of “Ready For It.”

The globe is literally being shaken up by Taylor Swift’s concerts!

The 34-year-old international pop sensation created quite a stir during her recent appearances at Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium—and not just because of her songs.

Concerts by Taylor Swift in Edinburgh create seismic activity on an earthquake scale.

Swift’s performances over the weekend produced detectable earthquake readings up to 6 kilometers (approximately 4 miles) distant, according to the British Geological Survey (BGS).

On June 7, 8, and 9, she performed three incredible shows as part of her Eras Tour around Europe, each of which produced a great deal of “seismic activity.” According to the British Geological Survey, popular songs like Champagne Problems, Cruel Summer, and Ready For It? corresponded with the strongest ground shaking.

The BGS said that “all three evenings followed a similar seismographic pattern,” adding that the show on Friday night had the most activity, with 23.4 nanometers (nm) of movement, closely followed by those on Saturday (22.8 nm) and Sunday (23.3 nm).

The BGS clarified that the main cause of the seismic activity, which peaked at 160 beats per minute (bpm) during Ready For It?, was concertgoers dancing in unison. The combined force of the fans transferred about 80 kW of power, which is equivalent to the output of ten to sixteen automobile batteries.

Swift’s performances have had a strong effect in the past as well. Her performances at Lumen Field in Seattle in July 2023 also set off a “Swift Quake.” According to CNN, seismologist Jackie Caplan-Auerbach, the movements of the fans caused seismic activity equal to an earthquake of magnitude
