Yeah, I don't really know what "Music 2.0" is supposed to mean either, but I've compiled a list of companies that I've come across the are doing something interesting with music online. Some are subscription services with APIs that make syndication easy, others are informational sites, a handful are social networks (some arguably not really music-centric), a few are search engines, and some are recommendation engines.... and at least a couple, I'm guessing, are probably not legal.
Feel free to comment an add to the list. I've highlighted some of my personal favorites, and ones that I use with some regularity. In no particular order....

UPDATE: I've now got a running list on delicious (with the tag "music2.0"). Not sure why I didn't do this in the first place. I've also displayed as a linkroll in the sidebar towards the bottom of the page. Either way, here's the link:
My name is Rachel and I'm part of the MusicIP Team; very comprehensive list! Thanks for the mention, and I'd love to hear from you if you give the MusicIP Mixer a try. I also noticed that you have FIQL highlighted as a favorite; we work with them as well, so there's some fun things you can do with FIQL, MusicIP Mixer and your music collection.

Rachel, thanks for visiting. I have used MusicIP (when it was still called Predixis) as integrated with Winamp. Haven't played with it much recently, but I will try it out again.

It uses third party services such as:
iTunes, Amazon, upcoming.org, eventful.com, Google Maps, rateyourmusic.com, pitchformedia.com, and thousands of MP3-weblogs and Podcasts related sites.

That's an excellent inventory. I did a piece of work on Jamendo earlier in 2006 and I think you've done a great job here. There's so much going on in this space; it's fascinating.
If you speak French, there's a professor at Celsa in Paris who studies music 2.0 and content industries. His name is Alban Martin and his blog can be found on http://cocreation.blogs.com/ and the slides from his classes are available on http://www.slideshare.net/alban/cours-numero-3-celsa-a-martin-et-e-vivier/
Check out the latest from http://www.grammyradio.com
It's syndicated by iBloks http://www.ibloks.com. The same team that made MongoMusic (The first music search service, years ahead of Pandora (1998)).
Here's a sample:
