Twenty-one people were injured in the stampede and taken to hospital, medical sources told local media outlets.
Thousands had gathered at a stadium in Algiers to see rapper Abderraouf Derradji, better known as Soolking, perform when a stampede is said to have broken out at one of the entrances.
Local news site TSA reported that of the five young people killed, three were male and two female.
Video footage posted on social media showed medics carrying a person believed to be a victim of the stampede on a stretcher outside the stadium.
The concert went ahead and was carried live on an Algerian TV channel.
