This achievement requires you to upgrade all 4 festival locations.

Each of the four festival locations can be upgraded to level 5. The final festival upgrade is available once you reach 25,000,000 fans.

There are a few ways you can earn fans in Horizon 3:

-Exhibition Races
-Championships
-PR Stunts
-Showcases
-Bucket List Challenges

Events such as head-to-head races and street races do not gain you any fans since they are seen as "under the table" races and not directly affiliated with the Horizon Festival.

*EDIT* Thanks to AH GamerScore for pointing out that the amount of fans you win varies on what difficulty your playing, so all of these numbers are based on "Average" AI difficulty, which is the default.

Now I cannot attest to the amount of fans you earn before completing the final showcase, but after completing it each race and earning at least 1 star in PR stunts earned me about 130,000 fans plus bonuses from my Drivatar lineup and Skills completed during the race.

My personal suggestions to doing this, if you are going to attempt to 100% the game, is the following:

1) Make sure you do every showcase event. Not sure the outcome of losing but winning them earns you about 1,000,000 fans. I know most people will do them regardless but I say this because you can get the achievement for completing the final showcase without actually having to complete it.

2) Focus on Exhibition races first. There is an achievement linked to completing one at every single route in the game and you get about 130,000-140,000 fans per race win after you've completed the final showcase, so it really adds up and they aren't time consuming.

3) While travelling between Exhibition races, try and get at least one star on any PR stunts or complete any Bucket Lists you come across. Granted you may not have the right vehicle at the time to get 3 stars, but one starring PR stunts after the final showcase gets you 130,000-140,000 fans, plus more if you manage to get two or three stars. If you get stuck on a Bucket List challenge though, just leave it and come back to it later.

4) If you race all the Exhibition races and get tired of PR Stunts and Bucket List challenges, then you can race Championships, which are a series of races. Each race nets you about 130,000-140,000 after you complete the final showcase, plus if you win the championship you get an extra 250,000 fans.

There are more than enough fans to gather out there that you do not have to complete every race, Bucket List, PR Stunt and Championship to get this. At the time of writing I only finished 58/63 Exhibition races, 6 Championships, and haven't gotten at least one star on 5 PR events.

If there's anything I'm missing from this let me know, and if there are any questions feel free to ask. Again this is just my personal experience playing the game, not a get fans quick method.
AH GamerScoreAlso depends on what difficulty you use to for the races because you'll get more fans on higher difficulties then lower difficulties.

Hirsute DaveI think co-op gets you a slight boost too - just a couple of hundred each but it adds up.

Just to let you know, losing doesn't make a difference on showcase events. I crashed out by the end of the final showcase and I still got similar numbers to my brother(who did it).

Also the number of fans you get from showcase events is basically "enough to get you to the next expansion".

I've only done 40 exhibitions, 4 championships and 1 star on most PR events, however I am on 28 bucket lists complete and I still need 1,000,000 for the 25mil

ThaFlavaWeird. This Achievement is the 3rd one that hasn't unlocked for me. I hate that.

alpha54Same here - hasn't unlocked even though I completed it weeks ago - very frustrating.

HolyHalfDeadWeird. I have been playing for 24 hours on above average difficulty (488 roads driven) and I am getting a tenth of what is stated. For example one exhibition gives me 13,000 fans not 130,000. My sixth expansion upgrade was at 320,000 fans and the next one is at 440,000. The required 120,000 fans takes me several events.

darkavenger786achievement didn't unlock for me after my final expansion. Stuck on 93%

alpha54I am still stuck at 93% as well... Even though I fully upgraded my last festival about three months ago. Losing hope that this will ever pop.

LionTXAchievement popped up 2 upgrades too early (around 17M fans).

darkavenger786@freinhar ... Head to the horizon hardcore achievement and follow miojo666's solution. I did that and my achievement popped after the first expansion. Follow the solution step by step or you will lose your save game

JAYMATiKThis achievement initially didn't pop for me, but when I signed on two days later it was unlocked. Seeing that some on this site (and on other sites) have encountered this issue, I would be patient before trying more extreme measures.

FullNietzscheStuck on 93% for me too. I concur with JAYMATiK, I'll wait and see if it pops in future but I'm not risking messing up my save game, no matter how small the risk may be.

ZedarboyThis popped for me when I got one site up to only level 4, the rest were 5.

ScottpantsLike many of you, I'm also stuck at 93% despite all sites being fully upgraded.

Otouto72I got this after only upgrading 3 sites to Level 5 while Surfers Paradise was still on Level 4. Very weird.

V3ntilatorIf you wan't alot of fans quickly, then do all PR stunts, and play alot online.
1 Championship will give you 600.000+ fans.

It also helps if you have VIP pass.

NickCremonezstuck at 80ish% I'm going to do the solution that Miojo666 gave, delete the save from the console and work from there
Posted by NickCremonez on 28 Sep 18 at 16:36
DenJuandeMarcoThis achievement is the 3rd or 4th one, that doesn't unlock. I made it several months ago: that is rubbish!

rangersfan414Also stuck at 93%. Let me know if anybody finds a fix.

The RankmeisterHi guys, just a quick update for those who are stuck at 93% for this achievement, like I was for ages. So, what I did was install FH3 on another Xbox One (I have an S and an X), started a brand new game (cancelled synching data) and as soon as I did the first festival upgrade at Byron Bay the achievement popped. Hope this helps anyone who has the same predicament. Thank you and stay safe.

DubstepEdgelordI still have 1 upgrade left at Surfers Paradise but I got the achievement somehow.

How do I unlock the 4th festival site? I have all but the one in Yarra Valley. I have finished all other festivals and they are all level 5. It says in the top corner to drive to a site to expand but I dont have the 4th unlocked...

StEvEY5036Can confirm if you're stuck at 93% with all the sites unlocked and fully upgraded that you can just start a new game, do a few events and the first site upgrade will increment the tracker to 100% and unlock. Took about a half hour to do.

Dr MartyAs mentioned above, this popped early for me, too. At 21M fans and 1 site at level 4.
