With just over a week to go until Taylor Swift arrives in Edinburgh, the local authority has released advice for excited fans heading to the shows.

Thousands of fans from around the world are set to descend on the capital city when the Bejewelled singer brings the Eras Tour to Edinburgh Murrayfield on June 7, 8 and 9.

Edinburgh council will be putting extra services in place to ensure the area is kept clean and crowds get to and from the shows safely.

Council workers will be tidying up key areas after each show with extra dedicated litter collectors at Roseburn Park from 4pm to 1am daily.

With Swifties having a big reputation for enjoying the concert from outside stadiums during previous shows, the council has urged fans only to travel to the area if they have a ticket for the event.

Council marshals will be on hand to help fans navigate the city.

Culture and communities convener, councillor Val Walker asked visitors to be “considerate and respectful” while enjoying the city.

“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.”
