Just a few hours after Lollapalooza three-day passes went on sale (and sold out in less than 20 minutes), reports of ads on the Red and Blue Line hinting at headliners for the 2012 fest started trickling in.

Listen to our Spotify playlist of all of the rumored and expected artists on the 2012 Lolla lineup.

Ads at the Logan Square Blue Line station feature lyrics, according to Wine & Pop, that hint at four possible performers: Die Antwoord, Justice, The Weeknd and Jack White

Below are photos of the four CTA ads, seen at the Fullerton Red Line station by reader Anthony Casanova (@anthcasanova) on Twitter:

The same ads have started popping up on websites including RedEye, TimeOut Chicago and Do312, such as this one hinting at an appearance by Bloc Party at the fest:
