The Festival Playlist in Forza Horizon 5 is a monthly rotating selection of challenges set by the Horizon Festival for players to beat and earn rewards. It is unlocked upon the player completing an expedition offered through the Horizon Adventure, and can be accessed within the "Festival Playlist" option under the "Campaign" section of the pause menu.

It offers points (PTS), as well as rewards, to players through their participation and completion of challenges offered during each season of a Series. A Series is a cycle of four seasons, with each season being active for a week and amounting for each Series lasting four weeks in total.

The total number of available points, challenges, and rewards differs between Series and seasons, although each Series and season includes two completion rewards offered to players by reaching certain amounts of accumulated points.

Players can only complete challenges offered during each individual season of a Series whilst it is active. A season is active for seven days with each reset at 14:30 (UTC) every Thursday. A Series is active for twenty-eight days in seasonal order from the beginning of Summer, through Autumn and Winter, with progression into the next Series occurring at the end of Spring.

Rewards offered alongside points include prizes such as hard-to-find cars, exclusive cars, credits, emotes, Forza LINK phrases, car horns, and avatar clothing.

The selection of challenges offered is split into four categories for each season.
