Grand final act Gang of Youths.

Australian alternative rock act Gang of Youths have been confirmed as the headliners of the 2018 Telstra Premiership grand final pre-game entertainment.

The Sydney five-piece had three songs in the most recent Triple J Hottest 100 list and signify a return to home-grown talent on grand final day after last year's successful visit from US rapper Macklemore.

"After the success of last year's entertainment, we wanted to go back a slightly different genre – just a great Aussie rock show from one of the best young bands in the business," NRL Chief Commercial Officer Andrew Abdo said in a statement.

"Gang of Youths are relevant, they're home grown, they're contemporary, and they are renowned for producing one of the best live shows going around.

"This year's act will showcase the best in Australian music talent and youth culture, with one of a new breed of local artists making significant headway both here and overseas.

"The fact that they are rugby league fans is also a bonus."

The multiple ARIA Award-winners said rugby league had played a significant role in their lives.

"I'm a Souths fan and Samoan. I can't guarantee that the Rabbitohs will be there, but this will be a very proud moment for me and my family," group front man Dave Le'aupepe stated.

The NRL said it will be releasing special tickets which includes on-field access during the Gang of Youths performance, which are available through Ticketek and nrl.com/tickets.
