Fans dressed as the star from each era of her albums, from full country gear and blonde curls, to her edgy pop image from the Reputation album, snaked down Hastie's Close as the queued to get in to the gathering which was a night of total 'Swift-worship'.

The night, which DJ Dave Fawbert described as 'a true safe space for Swifties', has previously sold out at London’s Moth Club and Manchester’s Gorilla and was born out of the times he had seen her in concert.

He said: “Edinburgh was the biggest show of all of them I think it was double than in other places, I was terrified before because it’s just me up there.

“Last time I put the event on it just didn’t sell for a while and one day it picked up - and then it just didn’t stop.

Although the club night only started up in August, Dave has been inundated with requests to bring the night to various cities across the UK.

Talking about the club night previously, Dave said: “Everyone looked like they were having so much fun and felt so happy and around other people who felt the same.

“I’d noticed nights that just play one artist’s work, like Fleetwood Mac and Hungry Heart and suddenly thought how great it would be to have a night of just Taylor Swift songs. I knew she’d have enough material to fill a whole night comfortably. So I booked a club just for fun. It sold out.

"Her songs have always had instantly catchy pop hooks and great choruses, they’ve always been expertly crafted - both the early more country-style stuff and the newer albums when she’s fully embraced pop production - but, of course, her lyrics are incredible."

He added: "I want to just keep going with it as long as possible, she might bring out new music and then the whole set list will get refreshed.

"I think liking her music is a bit outsidery and a lot of people who listen to her feel that way as well, but its always just a lovely crowd, the reaction is always great and people just get into it straight away."

The pop superstar recently won six awards at the American Music Awards where she was also named as the artist of the decade.

Swiftogeddon returns to La Belle Angele on Hastie's Close on 3 April 2020.

Starting at 11pm, the celebratory night of 'Total Taylor, All Night' will be a four hour extravaganza.

Tickets are now on sale on Eventbrite for £7.84.
