Forza Horizon 5 Series 9 Festival Playlist Events and Rewards Revealed (July 14 – 21)

About one month ago, Playground Games introduced Forza Horizon 5 players the new Series 9 update, but it wasn’t until June 23 that the Festival Playlist related rewards and content went live. As some of you probably already know, a new major update is supposed to be introduced next week, with the first Festival Playlist probably going live on July 21.

That makes this Festival Playlist the last one released under the Series 9’s umbrella. So, this is your last chance to score those needed points to unlock your favorite cars. On top of that, Spring – Hot Season Series 9 offers some really cool challenges and rewards, hopefully, all unlockable.

For the next week or so, Forza Horizon 5 players can earn points with any combination of completed events to get their first reward car. There’s a second car available to earn for those who continue to score points this season. The easier car to unlock is the 1957 Hot Wheels Nash Metropolitan Custom (new Seasonal Exclusive car – 20 points), followed by the 1965 Peel Trident (Seasonal Exclusive car – 40 points).

To earn points to get these cars and more, you’ll have to complete some (or all) of the challenges below. The points can also be used in the Forzathon Shop for various cars and items.
