I rented a new apartment with a lease starting on September 1st. My current apartment's lease ends 8/31. I foolishly thought moving out on 9/1 was standard practice. My landlord assures me it is not. Now what?

I'm moving within Chicago. My new landlord seemed sure that their current tenants would not be out early, but I've left a message to double check. My current landlord says she promised the new tenants they could be in by 9. My movers are currently scheduled to be showing up between 8 and 9. Assuming moving out before then is not an option, what sort of bad scenario's start to happen at 12:01 am on 9/1?
