EDM Trio Cheat Codes Electrifies Alumni Hall For Homecoming Concert

Cheat Codes, an EDM trio based out of Los Angeles, performed at Penn State Sunday night in Alumni Hall for Penn State’s annual Homecoming concert, thanks to Homecoming and the Student Programming Association.

Best known for its collaboration with Demi Lovato in the song No Promises, Cheat Codes has garnered national attention since bursting onto the music scene in the summer of 2016, including an appearance on The Chainsmokers’ 2016 tour. The trio is also well-known for popular songs Let Me Hold You and Sex.

Cheat Codes mixed in its most popular work with remixed versions of other popular songs across all genres of music in Alumni Hall. The concert kicked off with Let Me Hold You, but then quickly shifted to a remix of Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes.

Cheat Codes, of course, performed No Promises and Sex, perhaps its two most famous songs, along with other mixes like Travis Scott’s Goosebumps and Future’s Mask Off.

Thanks to Cheat Codes, some lucky concertgoers in the front row turned a fun evening into a profitable one as well. During the first few songs of the concert, two of the three members of the EDM group threw stacks of $1 bills into the crowd; fans in the front row were happy to grab the cash.

Although a Sunday night may not necessarily be the best time for a concert, a sizable crowd still flocked to Alumni Hall to get a glimpse of one of EDM’s most quickly-rising groups, making it clear Cheat Codes was a good choice to kick off this year’s Homecoming week.
