In a move seemingly designed to one-up the speed at which certain West Coast competitors have been announcing dates, Lollapalooza and its promoters have already announced plans for its 2013 iteration a week before this year’s fest has even had a chance to begin. Book your flights now, kids: Lolla ’13 is going down August 2-4.

As Consequence of Sound reports, ads announcing the new dates recently started springing up on Chicago Transit Authority stops, in the same sneaky way that they started teasing Chicagoans with its 2012 lineup back in March.

It’s no Lollapa-cruise-a, but it’ll have to do for now. While you wait to buy 2013 tickets, allow SPIN to help you make your decisions between this year’s most wrenching set time conflicts.
