Get ready for a serious case of ADD: no band on the upcoming bill for Auckland's Laneway Festival will play for longer than 45 minutes.

That's confirmed by today's timetable release, which shows every band on the bill will play sets veering between 30 to 45 minutes long.

It also shows the headlining slots vacated by Lorde and James Blake will be filled by Cat Power (Cactus Cat stage, 9.30pm) and The Presets (Mysterex Stage, 9.40pm).

Other bands playing in the evening include Jamie xx, Savages, Haim and Chvrches.

Hip-hop fans heading along to catch the day's three big names will have a bit of a break between each: Earl Sweatshirt performs on the Hey Seuss stage at 3.50pm, Run the Jewels on Cactus Cat at 5.45pm and Danny Brown on the same stage at 7pm.

Other acts on the bill include Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Kurt Vile, Frightened Rabbit, Mount Kimbie and Parquet Courts.

Lorde and James Blake pulled out of the festival, choosing instead to attend the Grammys which clashes with the event.

But Lorde is putting on a make-up show on Wednesday night at the same venue.
