The most thrilling, surreal, unique and immersive Illuminati masquerade ball in the world. Do not be fooled by imitations.
Thousands of lucky guests have indulged in an unforgettable experience where they were blindfolded, transported, sated, initiated and led through an exploration of the myth and mystery of the Illuminati.
We are currently not holding a ticketed Illuminati Ball. Our current meetings are private.
Cynthia von Buhler created an illustrated book so people from all over the world can experience our Illuminati Ball and learn its secrets.
If you received an invitation to attend a mysterious masked ball held by a secret organization of the rich and powerful, would you accept?
Meet the five candidates who do: the scientist, the singer, the chef, the attorney, and the financier. They crave power, love, money, respect, fame – that which eludes them. Their enigmatic host, known only as Pig King, craves something more basic: salvation for his kind.
But the Illuminati ball requires a sacrifice.
