Taylor Swift’s Concert Rocks the Earth: Literal Seismic Activity Detected!

Daniel Kim Views  

Vibrations at a Taylor Swift concert went viral for causing a magnitude that could be classified as an earthquake.

On June 13, CNN reported that the British Geological Survey (BGS) measured vibrations of a level that could trigger seismometers for three days starting June 7 at the venue where Swift’s The Eras Tour took place.

BGS explained that the Earth moved during Swift’s concert at Murrayfield Stadium, attributing it to Swift’s fans stomping and dancing in sync with the music. BGS is a national institution that records earthquakes to inform and educate public, industrial, and regulatory agencies about earthquakes and earthquake risks to plan for future events.

BGS stated, “We detected the vibrations at a research center about 3.7 miles away from the concert venue. This is scientifically recognized as an earthquake-level event.” It was confirmed that the most significant seismic activity occurred during popular songs like “Ready For It,” “Cruel Summer,” and “Champagne Problems,”

This is not the first time an earthquake has been detected at a Swift concert. Last July, vibrations of magnitude 2.3 were detected by seismometers at nearby observatories throughout Swift’s two performances at Lumen Field in Seattle. Some coined the term “Swift Quake” for these vibrations. This Swift Quake broke the record of the “Beast Quake” detected during a Seattle Seahawks NFL game at the same location in 2011.

Marshawn Lynch, nicknamed “Beast Mode,” had scored an impressive touchdown, and the audience cheered and celebrated so intensely that the resulting vibrations were measured as a magnitude 2.0 earthquake. Though the difference between the Beast Quake and Swift Quake is only 0.3 magnitude, one seismologist explained the “vibrations felt twice as strong.”
