Forza Horizon 5: How to find the Horizon 1 Festival Site in the Copper Canyon

The Forza Horizon series turned a decade old this November and to celebrate Playground Games has raced out a Forza Horizon 10th anniversary themed playlist; offered up a brand-new radio station (Horizon Mixtape) with songs from artists such as Avicii, blink-182, The Offspring, Marshmello and ODESZA; introduced an unlockable Midnight Battle mode where you can actually take the car your opponent was driving as your prize if you win and more.

But what would a 10th anniversary celebration be without honoring the series’ birthplace, the Horizon 1 Festival Site? The Summer Series of the 10th Anniversary playlist includes a daily challenge, “Party Like It’s 2012,” whose objective is to find the Horizon 1 Festival Site in the Copper Canyon.

The Photo Challenge, #Horizonversary, also revolves around the Horizon 1 Festival Site, with the aim being to take a photograph of the 2013 Dodge Viper GTS at the Horizon 1 Festival Site.

Of course, these challenges can’t be completed if you can’t actually find the Horizon 1 Festival Site on the Forza Horizon 5 world map; although PG tells you it’s in the Copper Canyon, it doesn’t tell you where exactly that is — and no, it’s not the Horizon Rush Outpost they’re talking about.

Luckily, that’s where we come in.

How to find the Horizon 1 Festival Site in the Copper Canyon

Although the Horizon 1 Festival Site is hidden on the world map, it can be found on the road in between the Canyon Pass Speed Trap and the “Catch Me If You Canyon” Showcase on the northeastern portion of the map. If you’ve reached the Canon Run street race to the west then you’ve driven too far; conversely, if you’ve reached the Barranca Trail race to the east, you’ve also gone too far.

Take a look below to see where to find the Horizon 1 Festival Site in the Copper Canyon on the map:

To complete the Photo Challenge, you must photograph the 2013 Dodge Viper GTS at the Horizon 1 Festival Site — the anniversary edition of the car will not work for the challenge.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
