Big, big news just in from clubland, as two legends are set to take over the decks at Dada Sunday night and close out F1 Weekend in considerable style.

Craftily coinciding his 2018 Asian tour dates to land him in the right place at the right time for Shanghai F1 Weekend, two time World #1 DJ Paul Oakenfold will celebrate almost 20 years of epic Shanghai performances with an deeply underground session at hipster hangout Dada(You can read our interview with Oakenfold from 2016 right here).

Kings of the Spinners: Andrew Bull and Paul Oakenfold

No doubt still clutching his paddock-pass from a torrid afternoon in Anting, Oakenfold will take to the Dada stage following a respectful warm-up set by Hong Kong-Shanghai old-school legend Andrew Bull AKA DJ El Toro. (That dream team duo goes back to at least 1997, and Andrew Bull's Hong Kong Handover Party Unity).

You read it right. Tout Shanghai get on down to Dada on Sunday night, and do not plan any breakfast meetings on Monday!
