This guy is pumped about the 2013 rumors. (more by James Richards IV)

Well, it's about that time of year when the Lollapalooza lineup rumors start to pour in. Fake Shore Drive points to a short list of rumored (or "leaked") acts for this year's festival, which is slated to take place from August 2nd - 4th in Grant Park, and includes The Cure, Jay-Z, Mumford & Sons, Blur, Skrillex, The Flaming Lips, Vampire Weekend, How To Destroy Angels, My Bloody Valentine(!), MGMT, Kendrick Lamar, Eels, Alabama Shakes, Lower Dens, Purity Ring, CHVRCHES, Alt-J, STRFKR, The Vaccines, and more. We can neither confirm nor deny the rumored acts, but it should be a good time if a few of them take the stage in Grant Park throughout the weekend. (Here's a reminder for you: in 2012, Lolla began to reveal its lineup via CTA ads.)

What do you think: is this list 100% bullshit or do some of these artists seem probable? Only time will tell. All ticketing information for the 2013 festival is forthcoming.

Check out the rumored lineup in list form below, and stay tuned for more details...

    VELD in Toronto just posted their headliners, and this makes be very sad, Deadmau5 and Above & Beyond are on the flyer. I was hoping because Deadmau5 is doing Lollapalooza Chile and Brazil, he'd be in Chicago.

    Hate if you want, but Jay Z is one f the most talented and successful artists, not just rap, of all time. Also, don't wish death on anybody because that is a terrible thing to wish

    The Vaccines will most likely be there. Someone e-mailed their manager, who confirmed that they'll be in Chicago in early August.
