Summer Season Festival Playlist (FH5 Horizon Creatives - Series 25)

Here are the details on this week’s events and rewards. Share tips along with your tuning setup codes. This is the first season featuring three EventLab creations in the Festival Playlist, and four Monthly Rivals events.


The season starts at 7:30am Pacific on September 14 and ends Thursday, September 21, 2023 2:30 PM
This is the first season of the Horizon Creatives series.


Points are accumulated across all four seasons. Each event in the Festival Playlist has a number of points to earn noted in the bottom left corner of the event tile. Accumulate points with any combination of completed events to earn the first reward car, and continue earning points from remaining events to earn the second reward car. Cars noted as Seasonal Exclusive are not available in the Autoshow, so grab them while you can! But don’t worry if you miss them, these cars may come back again for future Festival Playlists.

Toggle the menu to show the rewards and restrictions for each event - if you complete the event in a car outside the restrictions or fail to meet the target, you won’t get the reward and points from completion. You must have unlocked the Hall of Fame with Accolade points to enter the Trial. Access to Rally Adventure events require defeating the three team champions. Access to Hot Wheels events requires the Hot Wheels Expansion DLC; users without the DLC will still be able to gold the season and unlock the “Min, Meet Max” Achievement without these event points.

Any Bugs?

If you experience any new bugs related to this season’s events, upvote or create a topic in the FH5 Report New Issues section of the Troubleshooting Hub. As always we suggest restarting your device first to see if that clears the issue. Game crashing should be reported directly to Forza Support via ticket for investigation.

Modern Rally in A class, never thought I’d see the day.

Shame I’ll probably opt for a Rally Monster instead.


Well I guess it’s official. The crew is definitely onto the FOMO 20 diet plan and will continue to super size us to FOMO 40 from here on. Twice the grind, twice the fun ?

EDIT : fwiw and in the interest of fairness, once in the game it’s actually just the first of the season that is Exclusive so FOMO 20 does it. I live to complain another day :wink: :laughing:

Wrong forum?

Yeah, I’m confused: Max says “Exclusive” & playlist is “Hard to Find” with an existing car for 40pt reward; so which is correct?

Playground uses “Exclusive” for the first time a car is available and then switches to “Hard-to-Find” when it comes back for availability, but both have the same status: “This car may appear as a reward in Seasonal Events, Festival Playlist, or Forzathon Shop” or otherwise Gift Drops and Auction House from other players.


My tunes are going to be a little late. I have a good reason though. I’ve been a little busy down in Boca Chica Texas.



Missed the “Newly added”, so thanks for clarifying & glad it’s not another new add locked behind 40pts.

Right, so it DOES take a rocket scientist to tune in Forza :grin:


When are they going to add this car to the game? It looks fast!


:joy::joy::joy: oh man I’m far from that. I’m surprised they even let me get that close to that thing.


It will probably handle a lot like the Funco buggy…lol that thing definitely feels like a rocket. Just don’t try to make any turns.

I won’t be on until tomorrow but I have a couple of 240SX tunes up from a while ago, used on the Colossus so top speed was factored in.

129 078 285 (163.4mph)
942 684 932 (160.5mph but handles better)

Did a quick attempt of Autopista with the 2nd one just now before I go off and it did 158mph, hopefully that will be enough for the target if anyone downloads it, I wouldn’t think it would be anything above 140-150 in C class.


What a “great” start. First race of the trial and I got rammed off the road right before a checkpoint ON A STRAIGHT by a team “mate”.

For your reading pleasure, just imagine me cursing a lot, bleeped out by the censors.

Next try, new people: I had to start from the last place and the player right in front of me didn’t accelerate. He would then drop out a minute later. We would go on to need all three races for a win and we lost two players.

Ran the LFA in the trial. One of the folks tunes, cashless or tony,

Started last in both events, kept out of trouble and chased down the ai in first. Two relatively easy wins.

Ai not so good at the start. All over the road and brake testing. Humans clean from what I saw

Rally event lab was v ai in solo. Nice

Now that was a good treasure hunt. Something different at least!
