We have measured 1599 new redshifts with VIMOS on the European Observatory Very Large Telescope - UT3, in an area 21x21.6arcmin^2^, including 784 redshifts in the Hubble Space Telescope - Advanced Camera for Surveys GOODS area. 30% of all objects with I_AB_=24 have been observed independently of magnitude, indicating that the sample is purely magnitude limited. We have reached an unprecedented completeness level of 84% in terms of the ratio of secure measurements vs. observed objects, while 95% of all objects have a redshift measurement. A total of 1452 galaxies, 139 stars, 8 QSOs have a redshift identification, 141 of these being unsecure measurements. The redshift distribution down to IAB=24 is peaked at a median redshift z=0.73, with a significant high redshift tail extending up to  4. Several high density peaks in the distribution of galaxies are identified. In particular, the strong peak at z=0.735 contains more than 130 galaxies in a velocity range +/-2000km/s distributed all across the transverse  20h^-1^Mpc of the survey. We are releasing all redshifts to the community, along with the cross identification with HST-ACS GOODS sources on the CENCOS database environment http://cencosw.oamp.fr . Description: Observations with VIMOS have been obtained between October 31 and December 6, 2002. Observing conditions were photometric with an image quality between 0.6 and 1.2-arcsec FWHM. We have moved the telescope, hence the objects along the slits, in a sequence of 5 positions with offsets -1.4, -0.7, 0, +0.7, +1.4-arcsec from the reference pointing position. This is necessary to compute the fringing pattern produced above 8300AA by the thinned EEV CCDs used in VIMOS, and remove it during processing.
