Outdoor acoustics are generally great. I love not having to deal with 
room reverb. Of course, that's not always the case, I once played an 
outdoor festival in a park across the street from a large glass and 
steel building, the whole gig had a 2 second acoustic echo that was 
really annoying.

One thing to keep in mind is that under direct sunlight, most LED and 
LCD displays are pretty much unreadable. If you depend on being able 
to read the displays of your effects, synths, etc., make sure you're 
in some shade.

Good luck on the gig!
